Children's Internet access should also be part of their parents' education. Educating is showing, teaching, instructing, preparing, it is not hiding or hiding. A good education builds trust and respect; otherwise, without orientation and clear limits, only mistrust is created in the family environment.
In this case I am referring to children's access to the Internet, an issue that worries many parents and that, on many occasions, we do not know how to control it because we have no references in our own childhood.

Therefore, it is necessary that we alert our children about these dangers and limit their access, in some way.
