Internet is a place where a lot of information can be found. Youngsters use it a lot. As a child you like to play games, read, watch movies and keep in touch with friends on the internet. This should not be a problem if you know where the dangers are. That’s why Fundacion Telefon pa Hubentud Aruba would like to give you information about the Cyber world. During lectures we talk about the behavior and usage of youngsters online: internet use, multimedia, sexting, cyber bulling, etc. These are all themes that children and youngsters come in contact with every day.
• Cyber world is the world on which the youth of Aruba are on average 8 hours a day.
• Cyber world is a new and developing world where many problems can occur. Given that control and guidance for children and youngsters during use is minimal, many things can quickly go wrong.
Internet was intended as a service that everyone can use safely. Unfortunately, a group of people use it badly and therefore it is not always safe for all children. When you go on the internet it is important that you do not share all your personal information with everyone. If you put photos, stories and/ or data about yourself on the internet, everyone can make use of it. It is not yours anymore, it’s from the internet. There are people who are looking for information about other person to make wrong use of it. If they know when you are going on holiday with the family for example, they can break into your home. Or if they find your photos, they can print them out and hang them up everywhere to bully you. That is why it is important to set your private institutions everywhere at the highest security level. You can ask your parents or others who have done this before.
