Is There a Way to Protect Our Children?

With the advent of the internet, it has become far more difficult to keep children safe. The online world is full of temptations. Is there a way to protect minors?

Protecting our children is an absolute must, especially in the modern world. With the advent of the Internet, a new type of danger has emerged. While our ancestors were concerned exclusively about physical safety, most contemporary human beings direct their efforts towards a proper mental and social defense. The distress comes from various sources, such as porn websites, online gambling, not to mention videos and articles that inspire children with insane ideas. It’s unlikely that the affected mind of an underage person will change in the future and the responsibility lies with parents. So what’s the best way to protect your offspring?

By forbidding your child to use a computer, you won’t achieve any results. You know, it acts as forbidden fruit. Moreover, it’s an old-fashioned and ineffective method. Our world is crawling with electronic devices, so it’s not difficult to get access to a desirable website or program. On the other hand, these malicious websites don’t provide the proper protection. For example, to enter a porn site, all that you should do is confirm that you’re over 18 years old, merely by pressing a button (as if a child who wants to visit the website will admit that they’re under 18). Young minds work differently than mature ones. If you tell a child not to do something, they will undoubtedly act on the contrary. Therefore, videos which warn the customers about violent and cruel content, are even more tempting. As you see, it seems to be a vicious circle, with no way out.

To play at a casino, you must verify your ID, country, payment method, etc. At first sight, casinos seem to be a restricted area for minors, but in fact, the situation is far from being true. What prevents your child from “borrowing” your ID and credit card? Nothing. Moreover, while advertising themselves, numerous online casinos show themes like fluffy animals or use colors that may appeal to children. That’s why the only method we see to resolve this problem is to ban such promotional advertisements. That is what the United Kingdom Gambling Commission wants to implement.

The UKGC is one of the most reliable and respectable licenses a casino can get. They have stringent rules and do thorough checks of online gambling venues. A casino with this type of license automatically deserves trust (you can read more on the HolyMolycasinos portal). The UK Gambling Commission openly states that gambling can cause harm to people, especially children. In many cases, the evidence remains unseen to the public, but that doesn’t mean that the problem is absent.

From our point of view, most of the affected minors can’t get rid of the addiction. Gambling addiction is very similar to a drug addicted. Their brains react to the desirable stimulus similarly. And if a mature person is more or less capable of imagining the consequences of their decisions, underage gamblers find it extremely difficult to understand what’s happening. That’s why the UKGC decided to make radical changes in the online gambling world. Will it help? Can we finally rely on them? Only time will tell.

Children aren’t only our beloved creatures; they are our future. The next generation forms an impression of life on Earth, and we are responsible for what it will be like. Therefore, the way they are growing up, and the way we raise them, has global importance. Take care of your kids and don’t allow them to get off the right track.
