I allow my son to play all types of video software but, make sure to properly secure every feature to his age or level Of learning. I set time limits on the amount of time he spends playing to allow time for other activities like homework, outside play, and family activities. I do this so that he does not become reliant on video games when it’s time to do another activities or tasks. I also control the type of game that my son plays on the internet by blocking unapproved websites while my son is online. Paragraph 2 Computers also offer a vast variety of entertainment and fun for all ages.
I allow my son to play certain computer software only after it has been approved by his mother and me. Since computers are so prone to mallard and spy viruses I take serious precautions when allowing him to access the internet on our home computer. Some applications and games I allow my son to use are BBC Mouse, Cartoon Network, and Nettling. For each of these software programs my son has his own account that has pre-authorized games and programs for him to use. This shows my son how to be independent and is also convincing for me to trust him to go where he is allowed. Paragraph 3
One of the most portable devices that I allow my son to use on daily basis is his tablet. Tablets are another great device that offers games, movies, music, and learning. My son has his very own tablet that he gets to enjoy when we are on the road. On his tablet, he has his own surname and password that he has to put in. This was our way of teaching him how to spell his name. By showing him how to login into his device, we are also showing him the importance of securing your electronics. He also has many applications and learning activities such as Angry Birds, Mackey Mouse Clubhouse, and Cars.
My son is also able to access his personal Nettling account to his favorite kid movies and TV shows. Conclusion In conclusion, there can be many negative influences on the internet but, there are many ways practice web control with my five year Old. Setting up a permanent foundation with security features for a child friendly environment should be the main goal for any parent allowing their child to access the internet. Practicing internet safety with young children helps them to be able to grow and excel involving internet usage on any device.
