Internet Safety for Kids: 

A Parent’s Guide for the Whole Family


Between TV, internet, cell phones, computers, IPods and Pads, texting, social networks, YouTube, video games, and online gaming, today’s families are constantly connected, and often to more than one device at a time. Because of this, the 21st century has been called “The Multitasking Digital Age”.


“Digital Natives”

Kids nowadays are growing up “connected,” learning to use technology at astonishing rates, and making them “fluent” in thedigital language from early on. This way of life–being exposed to technology on a constant basis–is quickly becoming the “norm”. In fact, today’s kids have been given the name “digital natives” because they are exposed to technology almost from birth.

But many parents wonder, “What effect does being a digital native have on a child’s  development, relationships, and performance abilities?” Research shows that being constantly plugged in not only impacts social skills, relationship development, and use of children’s time, it also impacts the developing brain. It is clear today’s youth are developing brains that are very different than their parent’s brains, but it’s still not well understood exactly what that means. Is this better? Is it worse? The jury’s still out. All we know for sure is it is definitely different.


The Stats on Kids & Technology

The statistics make clear just how plugged in many kids are, and illustrate some of the dangers kids face through technology and the internet in today’s digital world:

  • In 2006, teens spent an average of 6 ½ hours a day plugged in to technology, whereas in 2011, that number almost doubled, to 11 ½ hours a day.
  • Technology is a regular part of school now!  kids as young as Kindergarten are using Smartboards, IPads, and Computers to complete assignments in the classroom. Older
    children rely on the internet for research, getting homework assignments, submitting work to teachers, and even accessing textbooks.
  • The average age children start using the computer is 3 ½.
  • In 2011, 12% of 2-4 year olds and 24% of 5-8 year olds were on the computer every day.
  • 44 % of tweens confessed to having watched something online their parents wouldn’t approve of, while only 28% of parents knew about it.
  • The average 2-5 year old spends 32 hours per week hooked on the boob tube, and 30% of children 0 to 1, 44% of 2 to 4 , 47% of 5 to 8, and 71% of 8-18 year olds now have TV’s in their bedrooms.
  • In 2012, 73% of teens are texting, sending an average of 2,899 texts per monthSafety Poster.
  • (As of 2011), 34% of teens text while driving; 26% of teens admit to being bullied through texting; 40% of teens admit tosending a “sext,” and 50% admit to receiving one (wanted or unwanted). 15% of sexting photos end up on the internet, and there is a link between sexting and suicide.
  • As many as 90% of 12-17 year olds are on a social network (as of 2011).
  • 8-12 year olds spend an average of 13 hours per week playing video games, and 13-18 year olds spend 14 hours/week. (And it’s not just the boys!)
  • 9% of children are clinically addicted to gaming. Even seemingly “harmless” games can be addicting.
  • 70% of kids ages 8-18 have accidentally encountered online pornography, often while doing research for homework (as of 2012).
  • Though children/teens are highly likely to accidentally encounter unwanted images and content, many are also searching for it:
    • The most frequent search terms for boys under 18 are, in order: YouTube, Google, Facebook, Sex, MySpace, and Porn.
    • It’s the same for girls except Taylor Swift takes 5th place and Sex takes 7th.
    • And for children 7 and under the top three are the same, with Porn coming in 4th!
