INTERNET SAFETY: TEENS ARE SAVVY, BUT ARE THEY SAFE?


The Internet has been a wonderfull outlet for communication, information, education and entertainment. It allows the entire world to saty connected and provides us an infinite amount of space. Like all other media outlets, the Internet is given the full protection of the First Ammendment Freedom of Speech and Expression rights. However, this is not always a positive point. Every day, children are faced with adult content and solicitations, and parents are asking for help to keep the Internet regulated. There is a fine line and a large gray area, though, between regulation and control.
