More legal spyware to spy on your kids
Here we go again. More legal spyware to spy on your kids. I know the web is a dangerous place. I just really do not think that spying on your kids is the best way to keep them safe. When they find out, you can kiss your relationship goodbye – and they’ll find a way round it if they want to. Ever heard of internet cafés? Friends computers? Mobile phones?
Talk to your kids. Educate them. Spend some time with them rather than delegate responsibility to some piece of software. Trust them and get them to trust you. Awareness Technologies disagrees with me:
As children reach the age where they begin to use social networking tools, they are extremely vulnerable. Without any safeguards in place, sites like Facebook and MySpace put kids at risk and impede parents who are trying to be mindful of their digital behaviors. With the expansion of our trusted WebWatcher software, parents are now armed with the necessary tools to stay apprised of their children’s social networking activity and better protect them from online threats.
