This makes the responsibilities of adults somewhat exclusive in cases where the topic concerning our young angels.
This issue has a special theme. The parent - child relationship is strictly personal, and subject to the particularities of any given family. In any event, the art of crime will attempt to provide ideas for forming closer relations and achieving peace to any troubled or problematic familial relationships. Particular emphasis is placed on the Internet and the problems that have arisen from use by minors. We hope this helps!
• Learn to identify signs that signal abuse or harassment of the child, or minors in general.
• Tell your children not to touch unknown people and consult them to tell you immediately if this happens.
• If your child mentions some form of abuse or harassment, contact the National Center for Emergency Social Assistance (phone no. 197), a special agency, or the police.
• Teach your children from an early age, their name, home telephone number or any other personal information, as well as how to use the telephone.
• Advise your children that they must not accept the company or service of strangers.
• Always be aware of your children’s whereabouts.
• Keep informed of the friends they keep, and their address and telephone numbers.
• Teach your child what to do if separated or lost.
• Teach your children to be vigilant, and to immediately inform you or their teachers of strangers asking for information or assistance, to photograph them, give them sweets etc.
• Instruct your children for when they are alone at home.
• Avoid quarrelling in front of your children, more still cursing or the use of force, since this may have irreversible consequences for their mental health and balance.
• Teach your children how to respond to several telephone calls.
• Promote your children’s involvement in creative activities, sports, etc.
If your child uses a computer and connects to the Internet...
• Express your interest in what they learn from the Internet, and where your children are better users than yourself, ask them to teach you how it works.
• Keep the computer in a shared area of the house, and not the children΄s room. Make Internet-browsing a family activity or use your PC with your children.
• You may resort to "filters", which is software specifically designed to prevent access to unsuitable sites (violence, pornography, etc.)
