User: how to reduce risk for children buying on line





Weegy: Unfortunately, children rarely report occurrences to an adult. Cyber bullying is accomplished in many ways, including*: • Flaming is a type of online fight. [ It is an act of sending or posting electronic messages that are deliberately hostile, insulting, mean, angry, vulgar or insulting, to one person or several, either privately or publicly to an online group. • Denigration also known as "dissing," occurs when a person sends or publishes cruel rumours, gossip or untrue statements about a person to intentionally damage the victim's reputation or friendships. • Bash boards are online bulletin boards where people post anything they choose. Generally, the postings are mean, hateful and malicious. • Impersonation can be particularly harmful and occurs when someone pretends to be or poses as another person. This is usually accomplished by breaking into someone's account, by stealing a password and perhaps changing it, or by maliciously using that information provided by a friend (one reason to never give a password to anyone but a trusted adult). Once the impersonator has access to the victim's information, considerable damage can occur. By sending out emails supposedly from the victim or by posting material online, the victim's reputation or friendships can be irreparably harmed. Parents need to educate themselves about their children's online activities. From IM and chat rooms to blogs and social networking sites, parents need to learn what these technologies do, how they work, and how their children are using them. Get involved and take control. Parents need to take positive steps to control how their children use the Internet. • Learn what your children are doing - Ask your children about their favourite online hangouts and who they meet there. Find out if they have a blog, a Web site, an IM account, or email accounts. • Educate your children - Be clear about the kind of personal information your children should not divulge over the Internet, including their names, addresses, and phone numbers. Teach your children what to do if a stranger approaches them online. ]
