This is for you if you’re a busy parent with one or more children aged somewhere between 5 and 12 years, and are concerned about how to keep them safe online.
Everyone knows that along with the benefits of technology come numerous pitfalls. However you may not be aware of just how much harm is being done as a result of what so many children are doing online.
What’s The Problem?
Did you know that as a result of porn being so easily accessible, children aged no more than 9 or 10 are committing sexual crimes on children as young as 5 and 6 years old? And that they see this is normal and acceptable behaviour based on their online experiences?
Did you know that in fact the biggest users of online porn are aged between 12 and 17 years? And that kids as young as 13 are registered as sexual offenders due to their consumption of porn online?
Did you know that about 77,000 gaming accounts online are hacked each month, and that your children are seen as the weakest link to your privacy? That it’s very common and easy for predators to track down your children when they give away too much information online without even realising they’re doing it? And that identity fraud and theft are rampant?
Did you know that about 158,000 children in Australia (and 3 million in the US) miss school daily due to cyber bullying? That more than 1 in 2 children experience cyber bullying in some form, leading to tens of thousands having suicidal thoughts, thousands of those attempting to commit suicide, and about 1 in 10 succeeding?
I could go on but you get the idea. The instances of children becoming victims of their online behaviour are too common to fall into the “It won’t happen to me” mentality.
It Can Happen To You
If any of these things worry you, rest assured you’re not alone! These problems are very real and overwhelming for most parents, and up until now there hasn’t really been a clear solution to tackle online safety.
Technology isn’t going anywhere in a hurry. It’s becoming more and more integral in your children’s lifestyle every day whether you like it or not. Hoping your children will be OK and asking them to come to you for help isn’t going to cut it if you want to know they’ll be safe whenever they’re online.
You see, kids know they shouldn’t talk to strangers online…yet all too often they do it anyway. There are countless imposters online who act very convincingly like other children. Are your children equipped to handle that?
Do You Really Know What Your Children Are Doing Online?
Your children may know you don’t want them to go on social media yet, but if they want to badly enough there’s a very good chance they’ll get on there and just not tell you about it. And that means you won’t be able to help them when they inevitably get themselves in trouble. Did you know that 50% of 10-year-olds are already on social media?
When you look at the stats in any area of online activity, without fail it shows that most parents just don’t know what their kids are really seeing and doing online. Most children won’t tell you if they’re being bullied online, which makes it very difficult to help them, and which explains why bullying so often escalates to the point of anxiety and depression.
It’s Not That Simple
You may have been told or read somewhere that it’s a good idea to communicate more with your kids, but it’s not so simple. How do you do that in a way that will effectively keep them safe?
How do you monitor what they’re doing in a way that will bring you closer to them, not drive a wedge between you?
My Internet Addiction Experience
My interest in this topic took off when my son became addicted to online games. In a very short space of time he went from a perfectly healthy, balanced 6-yr-old child to a boy completely obsessed by Pokemon. Playing his games was all he wanted to do, and getting him off them led to fits of screaming, often escalating to violence, which was otherwise very out-of-character.
It was very difficult to get through to him during this time, and our relationship quickly deteriorated into me angrily dictating to him all the time. I soon realised he was drifting away from me and I had no idea what to do about it. It was overwhelming, scary and just a horrible experience!
When it hit rock bottom I realised I needed to do something to help my son, and from that point I was on a mission to get him back. As a result of a lot of action we managed to wean him off his games and bring back a healthy balance for him between his offline and online worlds.
The end result? A much happier, stronger and more rewarding relationship than we’d ever had before. Priceless 🙂
How My Experience Can Help You
Using what I learned through my experience and then adding in a huge amount of ongoing research, I’ve put together a solution that will help you replace the fear of what your children are seeing and doing online with peace of mind that they can navigate their online world safely.
I’ve delivered this solution to other mums and I know that it works. I’m excited now to be able to offer this solution to you.
This is designed to help you with your primary school aged children, to set them up safely from the start. We all know that prevention is SO much better than a cure.
Don’t Make This Common Mistake
Most parents make the mistake of waiting until their children are older, or until they get in trouble online, and then find themselves floundering, trying desperately to find a way out. It’s a shame that so many of us wait until disaster strikes until we take positive action! The idea behind this solution is to save you and your family a heap of pain, as well as time lost with your children, and money fixing what has broken.
So what’s the solution, I hear you ask?
It’s called the “Peaceful Digital Parenting Solution” (or PDP Solution). It’s a comprehensive 10 week course delivered online via hour-long yet faced-paced videos that you can listen to on a computer or phone, at a time and place that suits you. There are masses of tips, insights and information that you can implement straight away to make your children much, much safer online – and to help you feel much more confident and capable as a parent. As one parent has said after going through the training:
“Ruth’s done the legwork to make it very easy for me to just get on with the job of being the best parent I can! It sounds cheesy, but I now have a lot more practical knowledge and step by step instructions on how to implement some common sense rules regarding my children and their safe use of technology. Even the first session gave me practical tools to bond with my kids using technology, not be alienated by it all. Thanks for all your advice and experience Ruth, I know it will help me and my family.”
Why So Long?
You may be thinking that 10 hours over 10 weeks is a long time, and you’re right – it probably is. But when you take the plunge and go through this training you’ll understand just how much you need to know to keep your children safe online, and why it takes so long! You’ll also realise that it contains the information you need delivered to you in a simple nutshell, saving you countless hours you don’t have to find the information yourself.
Cyber safety is a complex problem, and the Peaceful Digital Parenting Solution breaks it down into simple steps delivered to you on a silver platter that will truly keep your children safe online. I haven’t seen anything else like it on the market – and I’ve been looking!
Why I’m Passionate About Helping You
The reason I’m so passionate about this, and why I’m dedicating my life to it is because I love my children and would do pretty much anything for them. And I know you feel the same way about your children. I’m a busy mum just like you, and I get it.
Reading stories of children who have been victims online, whose parents have found them hanging in their room or lying on their bed having overdosed on drugs as their only means of escape, breaks my heart. It NEEDS to stop and it CAN be prevented.
I know how to prevent this from happening to your kids and family, and I feel obligated and determined to share that knowledge with as many parents as possible.
It’s Not Free…
While the content of the PDP Solution is priceless, the training isn’t free of charge, mainly because as human beings we only value what we pay for. The simple fact is that the more we pay for something, the more attention we pay to it. True or true?
The PDP Solution is designed to achieve results, to actually help parents keep their children safe online, and only if it’s paid for will you actually devote the time and money required to make it happen. That’s not your fault, it’s just the way we’re wired. It’s been proven without fail time and time again.
However as a special offer to you right now I’m offering the whole PDP Solution at a 40% discount, making it a no-brainer. But this offer is only available for a very limited time. Subsequent applicants can complete the PDP Solution for it’s normal price – which is still quite affordable, and WAY less than it’s worth.
If you’d like to get access to the Peaceful Digital Parenting Solution email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or complete the contact form here. We’ll chat further on a short clarity call to see if this will work for you.
Also if you know anyone else who may be interested please share this with them – they’ll thank you for it. The more families we can help through this difficult challenge the better – every life helped makes it all worthwhile.
Thanks for reading this ’til the end – much appreciated. I look forward to helping you and your friends keep your children safe online 🙂
