After all, younger ones may only interpret what they see online at face value and need the guidance of their parents.

Parental guidance is important

After hearing about incidents like this, it’s understandable that parents may grow anxious about letting their children use the Internet.

Teaching children about safe Internet usage from a young age is thus important in our modern world, to protect them in the long-run.

Perhaps the best ways to mitigate such incidents are to guide the kids along and download child-friendly applications.
