Shall we connect?
This time for our children

Protecting our Sons is a real Challenge in this ever changing Digital World.

Threats like Cyberbullying, Cybersafety, Online Harassment, Internet Addiction and many others are systemic issues: while we suppose to fight them on one channel, it's already happening on another one.
And our sons are really good at switching from one to another with a so high speed we find hard to keep the pace.

This is why I created many online channels: I want to stay where our sons are, and I suggest you to connect to the most of them in order to be there.

Together we can create an umbrella for our kids:

Our Children and the Digital World they're going to live
Observations from my Professional Practice

In my researches and on the field observations I see videogames replaced the Real World when we talk about exploring Life and the Environment.

But videogames are only the last ring of a long chain started with TV.

When a child watches animes or plays something like Pokemon (or Dragonball, or others) they are just doing what we used to do in the past when we were walking in the woods or in an uninhabited house defeating dragons with a wooden sword.

I'm not a fan of being disconnected, for it's quite impossible in the modern days.
Furthermore, our children are going to live a more and more connected Reality, so we need to help them to be ready for this.

And as I can see in my professional practice, kids stay less and less at home: they take their mobile devices outdoor and use them with their friends while they play soccer or chat in the park.

So I think we (Millennials) have lived a transitional phase when PCs were huge monoliths.

Now we have mobile devices (and soon wearable devices), geolocalized games (i.e.: Ingress), virtual reality.

So what do we have to get our children ready for?

Values
In my professional experience kids and pre-teens are in an "exploring phase", so all for them is a discovery and a test, almost deprived from moral value (it's negative: it's just the way it is).
So in this phase it's all game and fun, even things that may hurt.

It's up to us to help them to discern, but before we need to know the World of our children.

Is it about control?
Our parents always told us not to trust strangers and to be aware when at parties, but they never came to our parties.
There is an age when Parents have to lower the direct control in change of more trust.

Is it valid on the Online too?
What do you think about it?

What do you think about using a platform to monitor your sons online activity?
Question 1

As online threats are becoming more and more common, #cybersafety  is a real need for our children.
But how can we ensure them this safeness?

Monitoring platforms are on the way
Along with many educational events and resources many startups are providing us of platforms that allow parents to monitor the online activity of their sons.

Do we really need them?
People are splitting into two factions:

1) Some of them say we really need to monitor our sons online activity in order to help them to recognize and block suspicious activity

2) Some of them say these platforms are useless (if not dangerous) for the only thing we should take care of is Trust

And here it comes your opinion
What do you think about it?
Do you use these platforms or not?
Why?

When we are #kids we imagine there is a Ladder to the #sky.
When we are #teenager we believe a special Ladder had been built for us.
When we get #adult we get committed to reach this Ladder.
When we get #elder we regret we hadn't been able to find the Ladder.
But when we evolve we find the Ladder has always been there in our #soul, and we don't need to climb it for we are already along the Path.
So this is what we have to teach to our evergrowing sons:
stop imagining the Ladder,
stop searching for it,
stop striving for it.
Because you're already along your special Ladder, you're already on your Path.

Cyberbullying Protecting and How Parental Control Software may help You
(from my Medium Publication Digital Parenting Tips https://medium.com/hacking-cyberbullying-and-digital-parenting-tips )

If you have a son or a daughter, chances are you are worried about online issues such as #cyberbullying , Online  #harassment , #sexting , and other Cyber Threats.

And you should:

- more than 1 in 3 young people have experienced Cyber Threats
- over 25 percent of adolescents and teens have been bullied repeatedly through their cell phones or the Internet
- well over half of young people do not tell their parents when cyber bullying occurs

from iSafe Foundation

The worst thing is: maybe you’ll never know it because your children will never tell you

Cyberbullying Protection has already become a must, something you have to integrate with your family management.
Though Digital Parenting is not easy due to the ever changing nature of the “Internet of Things”, and our children are very fast to follow these changes.
Furthermore new devices give our sons and daughters an autonomy that allow them to bypass our presence.

This is when a Parental Control Software comes in handy.

I had the opportunity to test the Familoop Safeguard software, and I’m going to use it as study case and I’m going to tell you how to use Parental Control Software like this.

Trust is the Key
Parental Control Software by Familoop (www.familoop.com) has very comprehensive options to monitor and manage your children devices, whether they are PCs, Macs, smartphones or tablets:

- it allows you to lock and unlock the whole device, or a single app
- you are allowed to set automatic time limits, i.e. a bedtime and school limits
- so for each device you can decide what apps will be locked and unlocked, and when

You will be tempted, and you shouldn’t.

Trust is the key when we deal with kids and teenagers.

They need to feel trusted by their parents.

The option to manage their devices over the distances is a powerful feature if properly used.

So it’s right to set boundaries, for teens need them, and you will negotiate them.
You talk with your son and discuss their use and their habits, and you find an agreement with him/her (I’ll talk more about it later).

Switch From Control to Smart Monitoring
Parental Control Software by Familoop grants you the same depth when it’s about monitoring what’s happening around your children devices:

- you are allowed to monitor all the activities, from SMS to Social Networks to each single App
- as for their relationships, Familoop Safeguard allows you to associate each message with the related contact, so you always know who said what
- the software analyzes each word and each sentence and give you a “level of maliciousness” with blue, yellow and red alerts, so you can focus on what matters

How are you going to use all these informations?
With all this power, your teens may feel stalked by you if you don’t manage it the right way.
You need to make your children very clear that you’re not going to control them: you’re going to monitor the maybe threats for their protection.

This is why I see the Familoop Safeguard alert levels a great feature: you will focus only on the suspicious alerts.

Teenagehood is the age when more than the others the person defines his/her own Identity, and it starts with defining mental and physical private spaces and splitting different privacy levels.

So some people are allowed to enter some spaces, others are allowed to enter other spaces.

You will respect it.

So you don’t dive into simple chats when you monitor your sons and daughters online activity: again, your attention is only for the suspicious activities.

Let’s recap: Should you use a Parental Control Software?
Parental Control Softwares like Familoop Safeguard are very useful when it’s time to protect our children from Cyber Threats.
The downside is your teens may feel stalked by you.

So you have to follow some principles in order to get the very best from them:

- create Trust and keep it alive
- respect your children Privacy and focus only on the dangerous activities
- negotiate with them the meaning of all of this and how the software is going to be used

The Familoop staff asked me to partner with them in order to show the benefits and discover maybe cons and explain to the people how to use their software.
I’ll have an account that will allow me to dive into all the features and analyze them.
So expect more articles about it.

In the meantime, you can have a look at Familoop Safeguard by clicking this link: www.familoop.com

Familoop’s parental control software is going to be launched this September 2015 so the makers are offering a whooping 60% discount to parents who wants to buy the product ahead of the launching day. All you need to is prepay $2 now and get the full product discounted!

Dear #Parents you are right, and so your #Children. Period.
So you struggle to make your beloved ones reach their goals...your way?
Have you ever asked yourselves what your Teens ways are?

And most of all: have you asked your sons/daughters about their unique ways?

So don't give them the solution: your kids are not stupid and they're able to find it on their own.

Give them the means, and let them find the ways, because they're smart and they'll find the solution.

Because their World is full of means and tools: they lack the right experience to discern.

And if they fall down they're strong enough to get up again stronger and stronger.

So allow them to fail: maybe one day you sworn that they would have had a better Life than yours.
It's good, and having a better Life doesn't mean a Life without experiences.

Because, dear Parent, if you're so strong in the present it's because someone allowed you to fail in the past: are you going to deprive your Teens of such opportunity?

In my Professional practice I've been a great fan of what I call Moderated Failing .
So we allow our children to fail about things they are able to manage (it's called Experience, and help them to avoid dangers from which they won't be able to come back.

I had the chance to review a Parental Control software so I took this chance to wrote some lines about how this transfers to the Online World.

I invite you to go on with our discussion here:

5 rights for our Teens in their Digital Life
plus One
1) The right to remove
2) The right to know
3) The right to support and safety
4) The right to digital literacy
5) The right to conscious and informed choices

And I add my plus 1, what I call the zero right :
0) The right to have total control over the settings and the features of their smartphones and apps

Thank you +Sue Scheff​ for this share!

#cybersafety #digitallife #teenslife #cyberbullying #digitaleducation
 
#Parenting   #teens   - #onlinesafety  - an excellent read. Our teenagers live their lives on their smartphones. That means we should do all we can to stop them being exploited.

Dr Ferrero, Ivan, is without doubt a real asset to anyone online who needs assistance. His selfless attitude and caring mannerism are second to none. It is not just what he says to one directly but how he constructs his posts so that you know exactly what he refers to. Personally I can not thank him enough, even though the person who introduced us is a very deluded individual, as the saying goes, every cloud has a silver lining. This is why I highly recommend Dr Ferrero to anyone seeking help or advice. His countless posts which combat cyber-bullying are without doubt totally commendable. I am so glad to not only have Dr Ferrero as a contact but also a decent man who I regard as a friend. Thank you Ivan, best regards, Aiden.

I have little direct knowledge of Dr Ferrero myself. I do however have recent knowledge and personal experience of the Mike O'Brien who has left a review on here. He is becoming a well known troll on G+ and Youtube, and will fire off libelous, false, totally inaccurate accusations at anyone that he has taken a dislike to or views the world differently than himself. Mr O'Brien gives himself away a bit not even sticking to it being a review, he feels it necessary to attack the the body shape of the mans girlfriend? Pathetic. I therefor would support and take far more notice of Dr Ferrero's reply to Mr O'Briens review.

Hello, I read the About page here and a few of the posts, but I don't see anything that explains the purpose of this site. I do have a slight interest in this subject. Thanks, Tony
Response from the owner - 2 months ago
Hello Tony thank you for your review! What you say suggest me to edit the About page in order to make the purpose clearer. This is my professional online alter ego, so it's not a classical website. I prefer the Social Network format for it lets me to create a direct contact with my readers. More than writing essays (that I do) I prefer to talk to people and have dialogues with them. I interact with others posts too, of course. This format allows me to interact with people as I would do in real life. So if you have any question you can comment my posts or ask me in private. The purpose of this account is to help people by giving them right informations about their issues (I'm focused on Cyberbullying, Depression, Anxiety and Panic Attack, though I'm setting up new topics). Then, if they need an individual support, they are allowed to contact me private at ivan.ferrero1975@gmail.com where we talk about their issues and the suggested path. Hope this answers your question. How about you: what topics are you interested the most? Psychology is a so broad field of study! :-)

Doctor Ivan Ferrero Digital Psychologist has been the G+ K10 Network's preferred psychology expert since 2013. Dr. Ivan's unique ability to link the traditional practices and theories with the rapidly changing dynamics of human communication and expression with digital devices makes him exceptional in his field. He is able to speak in lay terms. Dr. Ivan's achievements in educating the general public in the areas of suicide prevention and social media bullying makes him a pillar of good in our social media and digital world. We have worked together closely on many projects. He is goal driven and organized. When Dr. Ivan says that he will complete something by a certain time, he always makes that mark. A pleasure to work with because he is innovative, friendly and reliable.

Dr Ferrero - as he prefers to call himself is a man without a medical degree - he presides over the psychology community ably assisted by an applied Pscholgist and maniacal leader - Dr Shapriro - (also non medically qualified) - both of these men decide the fate of posts by qualified pschologists - they ban at will and behave like little children - which is no surprise since Dr Ferrero - he works with children - married couples and yet - he is neither married nor has any children himself. They say there are non so pious s the converted - yet Feferro is not converted - he dates an overweight woman - and persists in not making her an honest woman. Why would he - he is far from honest - he is a SHILL - a non-qualified Psycologist who claims some prerogative at doing therapy - at least Freud had the decency to admit his fascism! - What did Italy do in the War - change sides - that is what Ivan Ferrero does - change sides - the side which suits him. AVOID this man - like the plague - Albert Camus had it right - call the pied Piper of Hamlyn - "Dr" ferrero is a scurge - an opportunist trading on the suffering of others - ban him.

Collaboro con il Dr Ivan Ferrero da ormai un anno. Da neofita del web sono da subito stata accolta in modo caloroso sul suo portale. Oltre ad essere un professionista competente e disponibile è sempre pronto a rispondere ad una richiesta di aiuto, pronto a confrontarsi in modo costruttivo e proficuo nonchè a condividere il suo sapere stimolando riflessioni sempre nuove. Curioso e ricettivo nei confronti di tutto ciò che è nuovo e stimolante, pronto ad esplorare in modo critico nuovi campi di intervento professionale e disposto (oserei dire desideroso) di cambiare le lenti usuali per indossarne di nuove con cui ampliare la sua (e altrui) visione delle cose. Seguitelo e scoprirete sicuramente qualcosa di più. Consigliato decisamente.
