Hello everyone, I'am Nazlin Nurain, works in one of private company in Malaysia.
I have 1 younger sister age 10 years old. Last week is school holiday so she spend much of her time surfing internet to get update with her social media likes Facebook and Instagram.
My concern is as the increase numbers of cyber crime towards children is recorded i'm worried that if my younger sister will be one of the cyber crime victim. She always open her Facebook, and actively reply her friends message in Facebook Messenger.
As she spend lots of time towards social media i'm worried that she lost on control because she online at her room so that my parents and me cannot see clearly with who she is be friends. Lots of reading materials i had read mention that most of the children are forced to make sexual grooming after they make friends in Facebook.
My concern is to make sure my younger sister surfing the internet in safe environment, can someone help me to realize my parents and others parents that social media also can give bad impact towards the children if the children activity are not monitor by them.
I'am really appreciate if someone that have idea, advice, steps, or any actions that can be refer in the way to educate parents on the important to monitor on what their children access in internet.
