A Dangerous Environment

Richard Lowe, Jr.

The internet is a dangerous place for your children. Dont even begin to believe that your child is safe. There are more dangers than you can possibly imagine waiting to lure children to their doom. You had better be aware of whats happening and take steps to shield them from the danger ... if you dont, your childs sanity and safety are at serious risk.

Does this sound alarmist Actually, I cannot stress this fact enough ... you have to be just as careful with your five year old on the internet as you would in the worst red-light district back alley in the darkest part of town. If you would not allow your twelve year old wander around a drug den or visit the sex shops in San Francisco, then why on Earth are you letting him or her loose on the internet without supervision

Lets look at some of the dangers that exist on the internet. The most obvious issue is pornography. There are dirty pictures, video, sounds, movies and anything else you can imagine available
