If the tragedy that befell Ana Kriegel has highlighted anything, it is that the fact that our children’s uncontrolled access to the internet is a time bomb about to explode.
Our children are our children and not the responsibility of a government official or department. Our children live within the bosoms of our families for which we as parents are responsible for. We parents provide the devices and resources that allow them online access to all sorts of information and imagery.
It is incumbent on all parents to implement the controls required to help avoid a repeat of this tragic and horrific event.
Parental internet control must become an intrinsic component of every family’s life. We lock our front doors and close our curtains to secure our homes.
Why do we not employ the same degree of protection to our children’s online access?
