It appears the initiative of parents and students in Blennerville National School, in Co Kerry, to ban the use of Smartphones was a trail blazing move. This has paved the way for other Irish National Schools to consider outright ban on Smartphones from September 2018.

The substantial feedback we are receiving from Parents and School Principals, who also support this decision to implement a ban, has been incredible. We are really starting to believe the time is right for all parents to come on board and protect their children by encouraging their school to follow suit.

If someone were to ask you, do you control your mobile phone, or does it control you? It’s quite possible, you would say, you have control over your phone. Most people think that. Of course, in reality the phone has possibly total control over you.

Today we look at why people feel the need to constantly interact with Social Media and why it can cause low Self Esteem or Depression.

It was with some disbelief, we discovered a new Adult orientated Channel had launched on Snapchat. "Cosmo After Dark", describes itself as, “an X-rated weekly edition that goes live every Friday at 6 p.m. and is exclusively dedicated to all things hot and horny.”

The new channel is available on Snapchat's "Discover" section. The content on this Channel, is not in any way suitable for children.

Please SHARE this Warning with other parents !

Speaking to children, we have witnessed a huge increase in the amount, viewing both T.V. and Movie content, which is unsuitable for them. Almost all of the children are telling us, they have seen the content on either, YouTube or Netflix.

This is a very easy to follow, step by step Parental Control guide for Netflix. Please Share this Post with other parents

For parents, getting a child to comprehend the concept of an online stranger, can be a difficult task. Children have no yardstick to measure this by. Sometimes the efforts of parents to teach this message, can be unsuccessful. This is our guide to help parents.

Please SHARE the Post with others who also want to protect their children from Online Stranger Danger.
