The Use Of Computers And Computer-Related Violence

If the advent of computers has brought the human race an immense improvement in their lives, it is also believed that it has caused issues with regards to safety and privacy. Computer-related violence and threats such as suicides among the youth, kidnapping, sex crimes and among others have escalated at an unprecedented rate.

Since a large percentage of adults of today did not grow up with the technology which the young population are enjoying right now and were not immersed into its use for fun and entertainment, keeping and maintaining their safety is a colossal task. Besides, the mental aptitude of kids this generation allows them to navigate the computers with great dexterity that adults seem to lack. Thus, it is difficult at times without the spying eye of adults nearby, to monitor the websites that children visit.

However, there are basic tactics or approach so that children’s activities on the internet are monitored. Reminding them regularly on its responsible use by spontaneously getting them into a conversation without letting them feel being spied, about the games and other activities that keep them glued on the computer screen is a simple task that will transpire into a responsible use of computers, mobile phones and the internet. To be able to deal realistically with the threats that technology harbor, it is essential that adults need not be caught up in the hype surrounding the mess that the internet brings by being focused and within the realms of reality.

First and foremost, adult strangers with malicious intents do not share or visit a common websites where the children are frequently into. Strangers too, are not equipped with technologic ability to locate children’s online addresses. Thus, it is impossible that such criminals will be able to track down children through their online address to real life address unless vital information is given voluntarily. Furthermore, an online discussion with a total stranger is like talking to a total stranger that we meet every day in the grocery supermarket such as salespersons, shoppers and even police officers doing their routine checks. It is only a matter of letting children know that there are certain boundaries to maintain with regards to how we interact according to social norms which later in life they will independently understand and learn how to negotiate it themselves. Thus it is important to let them know appropriate limits and not go beyond it.

Second, handheld gaming devices and mobile phones, although they can be equipped with internet-ready features, can be restricted only to the basic calls and texts features where call barring or call restrictions apply. Moreover, a parent can have his children’s phone line restrict incoming and outgoing calls and limit it only to pre-programmed contact numbers. Social networking on the other hand is one corner where they can express themselves among their groups and where parents too can get involved to be able to monitor the activities that their children have been doing outside and inside the school and on the personal side of their life.

We are besieged with internet-related crimes because of the unscrupulous use of the services that technologies provide. However, technologies are not bad at all because they only become bad with the way we utilized such product of man’s ingenuities. Indeed, the key to its safe use is through the responsible establishment of limits and guidance by mature and responsible adults.
