Twenty (Four) Questions for Extension

Question #4: 
Are your kids safe surfing?
During winter months, we tend to spend more time inside and online. The internet can be a wonderful resource for kids and adults alike.  Opportunities abound for learning, communicating and entertainment. Students use it to research school reports, communicate with teachers and other kids, and play interactive games. As soon as they are old enough to swipe a screen they have access to a whole other world.

But that access can also pose hazards and present risks, particularly for children, since they do not have the same capacity for judgment nor a volume of experiences to determine whether a situation is threatening or dangerous.  Children are naïve and tend to be trusting of anyone that is friendly and nice and predators can and do use these tendencies to gain access to potential victims.
