You are a parent and your child wishes for a mobile phone?
This phone should of course be web-enabled – because kids want to play on it, surf in the world wide web and chat with their friends.
“But which dangers should we be aware of?” you might ask yourself.

 

“Is it responsible to give a mobile phone as a gift?”
“Which is the right age for a child’s first smartphone?”
“Which security settings are helpful?”
“Which games are possible and make sense?”
“How much time should my child spend on social networks with friends?”
“Should there be a time out on the phone?”

All this and more might occupy you.

Just as you teach your child to look left, right and left again before crossing the street, to make sure that there is no danger by an approaching car, you accompany and help your child with discovering and getting to know the online world. You show your child the funny possibilities, e.g. online games, you explain existing dangers to your child, e.g. scams, and so you support your child in becoming an independent and self-protecting smartphone and internet user.
“But I am not so sure about it myself!” you might think while reading this and you wish for someone you can ask easily and directly, in order to feel confident in the attendance and support of your child.
