Online teen sext chat room
Keeping a track over kids these days Chat rooms for teens are a great way of connecting with different people belonging to different avenues and cultures.
Teen chat rooms offer every teenager the chance of chatting with old friends as well as gives them a chance to make some new friends.
One feature which appeals to her greatly is that she can have a private conversation with her school mates even if I'm sitting in the same room, something that she can't do on her phone. She has let me set up her chat service so that only people on her contact list can see she is online or send her messages, and I get to look through her contact list to check that they are all friends I know. In many ways this would be worse than the present situation, where we can at least ask kids to be vigilant about everyone they meet online. Doing this would at least reduce the number of kids exposed to the danger, and it would not deprive of them of any useful or valuable experience.
The only answer is to keep kids out of these spaces - to make them adult-only and require age verification by those hosting them. Looking after our kids means setting limits on their behaviour to keep them safe.
It really is shocking how widespread this phenomenon is. The consequences for children can be very damaging.
After all, we use radio waves to transmit BBC1 and Radio 4, for mobile phones and walkie-talkies and even for x-rays, and we do not expect one set of rules to apply to them all.While there are significant benefits to being online and to using the resources available on the net, the balance between these benefits and the dangers needs to be better understood, and a new understanding is required.Part of the problem is that we tend to treat the net as if it is one thing, but of course it is many.So we should not automatically let problems with chat and e-mail change the way we let children use the web.The major problem is chat, and as far back as February I argued that the prevalence of predatory adult males in online chat rooms had been demonstrated so clearly that it was time to exclude kids from chat rooms where adults might be present.
