As mentioned earlier, this is the era of smart phones and tablet PCs. There is no way you can keep your kids away from devices. However, there are certain steps that you need to take before giving them access to internet.

Sit with your kid and discuss issues that can land them in trouble. Don’t hesitate to tell them that sexting, abusing someone, uploading objectionable pictures and videos, and sharing personal details with strangers can cause problems.
