New Study Enquires the Parents’ Fear of Cyber Dangers

Parents’ Fear

Recently, a study was conducted by the researchers of University of Western Sydney which found that so many parents were the victims of the fear that their kids might be under the risks associated with social networking.

Providing a simple solution to this problem of the parents, the study suggests that parents can simply come out of such fears by taking more interest in media and internet usage.

Suggesting young people to be more aware about the online risks in comparison with their parents, the study found that students believe that they might lose their privacy if their parents became savvy social networkers.

Being aware of the potential dangers of social media, UWS student Aleks Damjanovski believes at the same time that young people would have to censor their online profiles if their parents joined the online public domain.

Highlighting the opposition of adults towards the social networking, UWS researcher Amanda Third said, “Young people felt their parents saw the internet as a dangerous place and believed they were ill-prepared to recognize and respond to potential risks”.

UWS senior maths and computing lecturer, Joanne Curry finds YouTube to be the most dangerous and that is why she didn’t have computer in bedrooms.
