The Dangers of The Internet | Harmful Affects of Internet.

Cyberbullying is repetitive harassment or threats usually made by a classmate or peer. The harassment is carried out through email, instant messaging or social networking sites like MySpace or Facebook and has become the number one danger that kids face online. And the anonymity of the Internet makes it easy for kids to engage in threatening behavior, says Francie Alexander, Scholastic's chief academic officer and co-author of The Internet: A Kid's Handbook. "It's much easier to bully someone when no one is looking," she says.

Whether it is pornography, lewd music, obscenities, or any other type of influence which parents wish to shield their children from, the Internet is a door to any content imaginable. Many parents will not let their children watch an R-rated movie. However, they don’t realize that YouTube’s Most Watched video section contains just the sort of obscenities which they want to protect their children from. While YouTube does not contain explicit pornography, a two-second Google search by a curious child is all that is needed to explore a perverted underworld of filth and grotesque imagery.

The Internet is a perfect forum to meet new people, but some with malicious intent can use it to “befriend” your child. Internet predators are expert manipulators, able to foster a relationship of dependence with a teenager. Most prey on a teen’s desire to be liked, their desire for romance, or their sexual curiosity. Often a predator “grooms” a child through flattery, sympathy, and by investing time in their online relationship. These can then turn into offline relationships or, in extreme cases, opportunities for kidnapping or abduction.
