Sexting is sending, receiving, or forwarding sexual photos or sexually suggestive messages through SMS, and chat apps like WhatsApp, Snapchat, and Viber. A study shows that children who are sexting or propositioned to send a text are more likely to have sexual intercourse. Chat apps also attract online predators to commit child sexual abuse. They befriend those emotionally vulnerable children, send pornog pictures, and even coerce the innocent children to illegal sexual activity! Activity alert enables parents to protect children from sexting or online predators in time!
The Internet even allows children to access those unwanted websites which are inappropriate for their age. Some websites contain pornographic imagines and videos, swear words, and encourage violence, crime, terrorism, racism, pro eating disorder, even suicide. Children may enter these websites by accident, but they may be willing to visit such sites next time. These websites certainly will do harm to children’s normal growth. Parents can block these inappropriate websites in time after receiving activity alerts!
Violent video games may increase aggressive thoughts, impulsive behaviors, and angry feelings.

Violent game addiction also brings about many healthy problems, such as obesity, vision problems, and musculoskeletal symptoms.
