8 Tips To Help Your Teen Navigate A Connected World

Posted: September 30, 2014

Teens and tweens can face dangers online such as cyber-bullying, online predators and phishing. Here are 8 tips to keep teens safe in a connected world. 

Tweens and teens are almost permanently ‘wired’ in some today. Digital savvy as they are, this benefits them in many ways, including school work, keeping in touch with friends and family around the world, learning more about topics that interest them, and indeed, finding their interests.

Yet, teenage is also a time of turbulence with hormones, academic pressures, peer pressures and the quest for one’s own identity all creating competing motivations and behaviour. While teens continue to need parental guidance, they also often resent it and seek to move away from control.

At this confusing time, it is more important than ever for parents to find ways to reach out to teenage children, keep in touch with their online (and offline) activities and continue to guide them.

This infographic below which we developed specifically for parents of young children, was supported by eKavach, India’s most comprehensive digital parenting application. This partnership is aimed at engaging parents and creating awareness around digital safety for parents and kids alike.
