Internet is not kid stuff

A survey by security firm Symantec has confirmed the worst fears of parents.

It warns that most teens and kids who browse the Internet are doing dangerous things online.

While most parents thought that kids were online only about three hours a week, in reality, they were online for more than seven hours. And more than 25 per cent of them confessed that they were doing things that would make their parents shudder.

The survey revealed that 88 per cent of parents were wary of their children's activities online but did not know what to do about it.

Over 21 per cent of the teens revealed that they had uncomfortable experiences online and 18 per cent had been subjected to cyber bullying. About 23 per cent of them said they had revealed their details to strangers on the Internet.
