Advice to Parents Μεγέθυνση κειμένου Σμίκρυνση κειμένου Print E-mail
Install your PC at the living room and not at the bedroom. This way you can supervise your children, without making them feel under surveillance.
 Transform Internet navigation into a family activity. Use your PC together with your children.
 Inform your children of potential dangers when chatting over the internet with people they do not know.
 Discuss with your children security matters occurring when surfing the net (communication with dangerous people, access to sites with damaging content).
 Teach them not to give personal information without your permission (last and first name, age, address, phone number, family income, not even school hours nor names of friends) and not to use your card.
 Do not ever allow your children to meet with people they have known through the internet.
 Teach them to refuse by themselves meeting in person with people they have met through the internet. Explain to them that these unknown persons wishing to meet them might be dangerous.
 Use so called "filters", which is special software material to prevent access to undesirable sites (sites with violent or pornographic contents).
 Check the contents of any audiovisual material - such as CDs, floppy disks etc - that your children buy or exchange with their friends.
 Find information on competent authorities, such as the Department of Electronic Crime (tel: +30 210 64 76 463), to which you should report any damaging or illegal content you come across during internet navigation.
