How to prevent grooming of children online

Grooming is one of the different ways of bullying children that occur on the Internet. It happens when an adult impersonates a child or adolescent and contacts other minors through social networks in order to obtain sexual satisfaction.

Experts and authorities from different countries have been warning about this practice before the growing number of cases of sexual abuse of adolescents due to these practices.

As we can prevent grooming of children online?

An adult with these intentions has many more resources than a child or adolescent to deceive and attract him to his field, however, preparing our children not to trust strangers through the Internet is a lesson that we must incorporate into their education. How?

1. Talk to our children. How many internet friends do you really know? Teach your children never to contact strangers or give them private information or data over the Internet.

2. Control which pages you browse. You can put parental control filters and you can also check which pages you visited during the time you spent browsing the Internet.

3. Do not leave the child alone with the computer. Place it in a common place in the house and check from time to time, if you cannot be with it while it is with the tablet, smartphone or computer, what it is doing.

4. Create a climate of trust. So that your child can tell you if he has a problem with someone, feels harassed on the Internet or uncomfortable with a certain behavior of someone.
