What Parents Need To Know – Part II

consolesPart II of a multi-post series. You can find Part I HERE.

One thing that is certain about Christmas:  A ton of video games are destined for Santa’s gift sack!

The game industry knows this and plans the release of games, game systems, and accessories with an eye to the end of the year.  That’s why we just saw Sony release the Playstation Pro, and why Microsoft released their new XBOX ONE S machines a couple of months ago.

So, parents, what dangers to your kids lurk in this part of the electronics industry?  What do you need to consider before getting that new game, or game system?

Let’s take a look!

Pokemon Go IconIf you have been in the civilized world (and  connected to the Internet) in the past week you have probably heard about all of the ruckus that Nintendo’s new game, POKÉMON GO!, is creating!  In just the first few days, POKÉMON GO! has thrown CANDY CRUSH off the top of the app pile, and (as of July 13, 2016) had over 21-MILLION peak users in the United States, alone!  The frenzy also hit Wall Street and, in the first week of release, Nintendo’s stock price jumped, adding $7.5-BILLION to the firm’s market value.

So, let’s dive in!

Monitoring iPhones: What Parents Need To Know – Part I

shutterstock_218810494 Kids and iPhones!  Those little handheld computers are both convenient and a problem, and problems are what parents worry about the most:  Sexting, social media, shooting inappropriate photos/videos, downloading undesired media, bullying.  And they should.

In the past year (2015-2016) courts have ruled that parents may be held legally responsible and considered legally negligent due to children’s activities online when the parents are aware that a child’s online activities may be injurious or are in need of correction (BOSTON et al. v. ATHEARN et al., Georgia Court of Appeals).  In addition, purchases made online, especially in-app purchases, can blow the family budget.  So, if parents are on the hook, what do they do?

ONLINE PORN: It’s A Girl Problem Now….

“Pornography?  I don’t worry about that. I only have girls!”girls surfing Internet M1

That’s what a mom told me a 3-4 years ago when I mentioned what I do to educate and equip parents to keep kids safe online.  She was assuming things were like they were in her day, when almost all the consumers of porn were male.

Things have changed.

Secret File Vaults: What Parents Need To Know

Let’s face it: We ALL hidicon175x175 stuff from our parents!

So, why should we be surprised when our kids try to hide stuff from us, especially inappropriate material from the Internet, like pornography?  The problem is, they have ‘way more tools for hiding than we did.  In my day a teen might hide a Playboy underneath his mattress or in his closet.  Today, kids can hide files on hard drives, USB drives, camera/tablet memory cards, and on phones and tablets, themselves.

When hiding files on phones and tablets they are using apps that are called “vaults”, “photo vaults”, or “file vaults”. These are apps that parents need to know about, so let’s take a look.

Signs of Pornography Addiction

QuestionI get regular inquiries from pastors, counselors, spouses, and parents about pornography use and addiction. Often I am asked:  “What are the signs of pornography addiction?”

Though hotly debated, the scientific evidence is increasing that shows pornography addiction is a real addiction…and problem.  The physiological changes in the brains of those who consume large amounts of pornography are being found to mirror those founds in drug addicts and alcoholics, especially in the part of the brain called The Reward Center.

As with tobacco in the 1950’s and 1960’s, today science is revealing a truth the public does not want to admit:
