The Internet can be a wonderful resource for kids. They can use it to research school reports, communicate with teachers and other kids, and play educational games. Kids who are old enough to punch in a few letters on the keyboard can literally access the world.
But that access can also pose threats. For example, an 8-year-old might do an online search for "Lego." But with just one missed keystroke, the word "Legs" is entered instead, and the child may be directed to a slew of websites with a focus on legs — some of which may contain pornographic material.
That’s the reason why we are implementing this new workshop to help and protect our children
