Protect your family from cyber dangers – for free with ResiNet!
So says ResiNet director Andrew Boyd. He believes that, as parents, we have a major responsibility to protect our children from these dangers, and is offering ResiNET customers free access to security software for each new 24 month contract that is signed.
Andrew continues, ‘For example, did you know the following?
• Most kids are first exposed to porn at less than 11 years of age?
• An unsolicited image is the beginning of a long battle with porn addiction?
• One in five children ages 10-17 have been approached for sex online?
• 57% of kids have accidentally accessed inappropriate material online?
• 75% of these young people do not tell their parents about these incidents?
• The porn industry is now the seventh largest industry in the U.S.?’ *
Andrew explains, ‘The negative effects of unsolicited cyber communication can be catastrophic for a child. Cyberbullying – when kids use the Internet to harass, intimidate, embarrass, or demean others – can cause untold harm. Victims can suffer from low self-esteem, fall behind in school work, or become anxious, depressed, and even suicidal.
‘Kids who might never be mean in the real world sometimes bully online because of the feeling of anonymity that the Internet gives them. But even if they can’t see the people they are hurting, cyberbullies do real damage. **
‘We strongly advise every parent to take steps to prevent these opportunities from arising. In fact, we feel so passionate about this, we are offering each of our ResiNET customers a free one year subscription to NetNanny. This service is invaluable, and gives parents peace of mind, knowing their family is safe from internet hazards.’
‘To activate your NetNanny subscription, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org Please include your daytime phone number and a technician will contact you to arrange activation.
