6 Defensive Protections against Cyberporn

Every day, all over the globe, millions of people make use of the Internet. Most of them log on to apply for jobs, catch up the world news, conduct business,  check the weather, study about different nations, obtain travel information, or simply communicate with family and friends in various places of the world. But sadly some—single adults and married as well as a shocking number of children—will be going on-line for a very different reason: “to look for pornography.”

Computer pornography, also known as “cyberporn,” is very popular that it has become a multimillion-dollar business. And why people log on to Internet for pornography? Online customers can view racy fare without having to sneak into a shady bookstore or even visit the nearby video shop’s backroom. Customers can peruse dirty fare in the privacy of the home—or office.

Unhappily, many viewers of cyberporn are children and minors who are forbidden by law from procuring pornographic materials or from renting pornographic videos.   They can gain ready access to these at home with a few mouse clicks. The choices are all endless.

Many young children frequently visit Internet websites with no knowledge of their parents. In fact, more than 2 in 5 children have subscribed to online services or to a web site even though nearly 85% of parents have rules against doing so.

While most children—and adults also—are cautious to cover the fact that they experiment in pornography, not everybody knows the reason to do so. Some would consider this practice as a safe form of recreation. Others concede that pornography is bad for children but reason that what adults perform in private is their personal business.

Following are suggestions which can help shield your children from the risks of pornography on the Internet:

       1.    Do not approve your children to have access on the Internet from his private bedroom.  Position any connected computers in a space that is easily reachable to all members of the family      

      2.  Verify if your child has created his personal Web site without your awareness. To check this, try searching for his name on search engines that scour the entire Internet.  Key in his full name in quotes to keep away from false hits.

  1. Be acquainted with the computer services your children are using.

  1. Do not give response to messages or bulletin board items that are nasty, suggestive, or threatening.

  1. Never allow your child to do a face-to-face meeting with another computer online user who is not familiar to you.

  1. Advise and warn your children about accessing unsuitable matters on the Internet. Teach and help them to act as their own suppress if you’re not around.  Bear in mind that computers in the home or at school may not be child-proofed against online pornography.
The point of this article is to educate the readers of the harm of viewing cyberporn and to suggest ways how they can protect themselves, their loved ones especially children and to provide suggestions for anyone who has become spellbound by pornography!

around to watch. Participate actively in what your child is doing online. Monitor all
of your child’s e-mail, as well as all the sites he/she visits. Visit computer sites your
child may want to visit beforehand to screen out undesirables. Inspect the
computer’s history and instant messaging logs regularly, and know your child’s email password at all times.
