Parents should be educated about the potential dangers of the internet and to pass down the information to their children cautioning them about the inappropriate material the internet may contain if accidentally stumbled upon. Additionally, their children should be informed about the reason why being exposed and desensitized to the harmful content of violent behavior, profanity, or sexual behavior at a young age is not appropriate. Parents should also well-educate their children about the distinct forms of entertainment and how it is strictly for entertainment purposes only. The way Ellison perceives the show, “Happy Tree Friends,” as an entry to viewing of violence is biased. By labeling the show as a threat to children, it validates the negative effects on young children.
Imagine your parents watching your every move, whether it’s telling your best friend your deepest secret, or talking to your crush, how would you feel? I wouldn’t like my parents being nosy, If I wanted them to know I’d tell them! In his article, “The Undercover Parent,” Harlan Coben makes the argument that parental monitoring spyware should be used by parents. If you’re a parent, living with children or teenagers in the 21st century, then you need to do your research on monitoring spyware. If your next question is “what is spyware?” Monitoring software, otherwise known as spyware, is a program that can be downloaded to your electronic devices and allows you to monitor all activities on specific cell phones or tablets.
According to the video Cyberbully Virus at least 42% of kids/teenagers have been bullied online. According to www.verywell.com, students are bullied in many different ways including their religion, sexual orientation, race, physical features, and more.

Some kids have learned to bully from others (parents, brothers or sisters, friends).They have seen them getting their way by being angry or pushing other people around.
At dinner, Coben found spyware absurd and as an invasion of privacy, when he first found out his friends put spyware on their computers; after research, Coben now suggests that parents putting spyware on their computer is “Scary. But a good idea. Most parents won’t even consider it” (21). Spyware is a simple software that can be easily downloaded to your computer to check your child’s activities. It is what we find there that may be frightening.
Lingering Harm Posting a video online of a school fight may make students feel “cool”, but people are unaware of the lingering harm they truly do. Schools all around the country try to reprimand the student that is the attacker, but just recently they have begun to come aware of another threat, the person filming, and posting the video online. These actions must be watched carefully, and be brought to an end, as they only have consequences that harm students to a greater level.

An example of this issue is when two boys at Calvert
Statutory Rape Statutory rape is a non-forcible crime of sexual intimacy between an adult and a child under the age of legal consent. The age of consent varies by jurisdiction, but is typically eighteen years old and below. Some jurisdictions also require the perpetrator to be ‘X’ number of years older than the victim before someone is charged with statutory rape. These laws are set in place because it is believed that a person below the age of adulthood cannot legally consent to sexual acts. The problem with statutory rape laws is that a person in their teen years is at the peak of puberty and is oftentimes experimenting with different sexual acts.

But recently in the news there has been a debate if kids should be allowed to play these so called games. Many people think that kids should be allowed to play theses games because they are just games and all in fun. However, many people including myself think that kids should not play violent role playing games because kids get the idea that life is just a game and killing someone is also. In the story High jinks Shoot-out we meet teens readying up for the annuel water gun Shootout where kids go around and dispatch there enemies so that they can win the $300 in the winners pot.However in order to achieve the victory kids must do very dangerous and stupid things.For example we learn that a kid went to an airport to kill a target.“In 2007, Jake Protell, a freshman, distinguished himself by ferreting out the itinerary of a field trip that two targets were taking to Tel Aviv.

It may not surprising that the minority of perpetrators see this cruelty as the source of entertainment and others are too cowed to protest. These people may lack attention and supervision from relatives, so they start leaning on the
Many predators could seem nice and friendly online, but when you meet them somewhere with not a lot of people, especially your home, they can kidnap you and put you in the system. This is why some people don 't know where their loved ones have gone because of meeting someone that they meet online and they got kidnapped. Some pros about stopping human trafficking is that the predator will go to jail and they will not be performing anymore crimes on the streets. Being put in jail for trafficking will automatically put them on the sex offenders list. This will limit their access to living near and working with children.
The lack of protection could make them vulnerable to the harsh world of the internet. Harsh people these days tend to show no mercy since they could care less about the opposing person 's feelings. Other than that, they become influenced to continue wrongdoings because others encourage it through their actions.
