Young People Online

My colleague in AU, Angela Thomas asked her young collaborators:

If you could write a guide for parents about the internet, would you have any warnings for them, based on any unpleasant experiences or knowledge you have gained?

Their answers are very insightful. Hint: If is hints at irony it probably is meant to do so. *S*

DON'T YOU DARE LET YOUR KIDS INTO PUBLIC CHATROOMS EVER!!!!!!! *coughs* Yeah, I have to agree with Jandalf on that. I've only been in one or two... on Barrowdowns... and that was bad enough. And, to carry on with a basic guide by me...

Do not let your children read slash fanfic. It will taint their minds.

Do not let your children see the image of Gollum in a tutu. That will taint their minds as well.

Set google on strict filtering, unless you want your kids looking at nudes. And supervise them when they search too, just in case. Especially image searches regarding female celebs.

Do not just randomly jump about in live journal.

Do not randomly email people.

Do not post your IM or email in a profile. Especially IM. Unless you actually want a wannabe jerk on all your IM lists as aliases trying to flirt with you at all possible moments, do not let them have your IM.

Keep your password secret. I haven't given mine out, but, really. ...okay, a couple people who I really trust could actually hack most of my accounts, but... heh... KEEP IT SECRET!

And don't join webpages that just have "some" evil stuff on them. Chances are it'll spread and taint the rest, no matter how nice the rest of the page may seem.

Don't read R rated fanfics if they're in the romance category.

Don't flirt with people who might take you seriously.

Heh... yes, I could go on for hours about what you should avoid doing on the internet... I've learned everything the hard way.
