Many parents and teachers feel that children should not be spending much time and energy on computers. They argue that the internet is dangerous because the child does not have the skills to handle sexual predators and cyber bullies and pornography and extremist propaganda online. They argue that a child should be studying traditional subjects in the way that they themselves once studied, and not allow modern technology to tempt them into addiction and passive entertainment. They see computers as a waste of time and the idea of doing creative arts online as ridiculous and unnecessary.
How can we argue against the above mentioned with evidence?

1.) Download Google Chrome.
2.) Make a Google Account just to use for my child.
3.) Lock the "Safe Search" on and restrict access to some websites, lock the "delete browsing history" function.
4.) Download an Adblock extension.
5.) Download Malwarebytes & buy the premium edition.
6.) Have a word with them about internet safety
7.) Allow them to use the computer as often as they like, considering they will be at school 5 days a week... I'd just tell them to turn it off and come shopping or go out.
