My kids block the phone with Pin code, what can I do?
I suspect or have discovered my young son watching porn. What should I do?
We need to acknowledge their curiosity and say that we understand that this is an interesting content – but this is not content that is suitable for children and these are not things I allow to watch. Not at home, not at school and not with friends.
This content can scare or disgust you because it is not really adapted to your age and I do not want you to think that this is what people look like when they hug and kiss or get intimate with each other. I do not want you to think that it is an unpleasant act because when people choose to be intimate it is a beautiful and pleasant and good thing and these films do not present it in this way and sometimes even shows it in a violent way. It’s really not like that in reality.
What to do if you see: If you are at home – come to usIf you are in school or in a class – go to the adult who’s in charge.If you’re with friends – try not to continue watching with them, go out and call us.It is important that you know that these videos and images are not good for your healthy development. Among other things, they make those who watch them at a young age think that this is what sexuality between adults really looks like. They really do not present it, they present private contact between people as something public and sometimes in a violent and degrading act and it is not really like that. This is not how real contact seems to be between people who have a relationship or love and a mutual desire for intimacy. Real contact between older people who want it, it is a good and pleasant thing, neither violent nor public. Such contact is made with communication, mutual respect and privacy. It is not filmed and is not online. We are not angry with you and will not be angry if you come to tell us that you were accidentally or intentionally exposed to these content. Most of all it is important for us that you talk to us because we have the knowledge about it, and it is important for us that you won’t be alone in this.
In order to help your children to avoid this content we recommend you to install DigiFamily app and it will block all web site and apps with adult content.
I decided to buy a mobile phone to my kid, how can I protect it?
Parent-Child contract – 8 rules that should make with your child from the day you give your child a phone.
- Any password for locking the phone or for apps, it is the child’s duty to give the parent access to it. If you want to download a particular app, the child will approach the parents and they will decide together.
- Parents can see what is happening on the child’s phone – out of love and concern, it is the parent’s responsibility to teach him about the dangers of the internet and so if something happens, you can also help him.
- Do not confirm on social networks people whom you do not know personally – you can only interact with people you know face to face because you cannot know for sure who is on the other side.
- Do not give personal information or photos on social networks or apps
- Do not meet with people you know online only – if someone offers such a thing, the child should report to the parent immediately.
- There is no place for abusive language, insults, boycotts, curses or anything that could harm another person – if such a conversation takes place, do not take part in the conversation and tell the parent immediately.
- It is allowed to take photos or videos on the phone, with restrictions –
A. A picture that they will feel comfortable with if it is published.
B. If you are photographing someone else, you need to get their permission.
C. No private organs are photographed. Neither ours nor that of others.
Gifts or offers for the child online, even if it is people that he knows – approach the parent and let them know. For example – free games, offers to participate in a raffle, be a model, etc.
It should be mentioned that the phone is given because the parent trusts the child who will know how to use it in wisely and in a mature way and that the rules are meant to protect them.

Who are cyberbullies?
What is the difference between cyberbullying and “regular” bullying?
A cyberbully can easily hide behind a fake identity, whereas a “regular” bully’s identity is known. E-mail and text messages sent by a Cyberbully can be easily and quickly distributed to a wide audience, increasing the victim’s suffering. A single message posted online or sent to a mobile phone can spread to a wide audience. A bullying incident occurs between a bully and his victim. If other people are present, they will witness the bullying. Cyberbullying can occur even when it was not intended. A forwarded private message or joke becomes offensive or harassing even though that was not the intent of the original sender A “regular” bullying incident occurs at a specific time and place. It may have long lasting effects but it is a onetime incident. When a cyberbully publishes offensive content on the Internet, it does not “go away”, it can resurface at any time.
