PROJECT: SAFEGUARDING CHILDREN IN THE AGE OF CELL PHONES

YOU MAY SHARE THIS PUBLIC DOCUMENT

 

 
1.
• Children are vulnerable to online predators who may exploit their innocence.
• Educating children about safe online behaviour, not sharing personal information, and avoiding contact with strangers is crucial.
• Cyberbullying is another risk.
• Children may encounter hurtful messages, threats, or harassment online.
• Parents should monitor their children’s online interactions and encourage open communication.

2.
• Many cell phones have GPS capabilities, which can be helpful for navigation but also pose risks.
• Geotagged photos or social media posts can reveal a child’s location.
• Parents should disable geotagging features and discuss privacy settings with their children.

3.
• The internet provides access to a vast amount of positive and negative information.
• Children may accidentally stumble upon inappropriate content, including violence, explicit material, or harmful ideologies.
• Parental controls and age-appropriate filters can help mitigate this risk.

4.
• Cell phones allow communication with people beyond immediate family and friends.
• Children should be cautious when interacting with unknown numbers or social media contacts.
• Teach them about “stranger danger” and the importance of not sharing personal details with unfamiliar individuals.

5.
• While cell phones are essential for emergencies, children should know how to use them effectively.
• Teach them to call for help, memorise crucial numbers, and use location-sharing features.
• Encourage children to keep their phones charged and accessible at all times. 6. • As children gain access to smartphones, they may engage in risky behaviours such as sexting (sending explicit messages or images).
• Educate them about the potential legal and emotional consequences.
• Discuss the importance of respecting privacy and not sharing intimate content with others.

7.
• The blue light emitted by screens can interfere with sleep patterns.
• Children who use cell phones before bedtime may experience difficulty falling asleep or disrupted sleep cycles.
• Encourage a “digital curfew” by limiting screen time before sleep.

8.
• Prolonged cell phone use can lead to poor posture, especially when children hunch over screens for extended periods.
• Teach children about maintaining proper posture and taking breaks from screen time.

9.
• Cell phones distract children during school hours or while doing homework. Notifications, social media, and games divert their attention from learning.
• Consider setting specific times for cell phone use, such as after completing homework.

10.
• In-app purchases, subscriptions, and online games can lead to unexpected charges on parents’ credit cards.
• Discuss responsible spending habits and monitor app permissions.

11.
• Parents should review privacy settings on their children’s phones.
• Disable unnecessary permissions for apps and ensure location services are used judiciously.
• Teach children about the importance of privacy and the risks associated with sharing location data.

12.
• Not all cell phone use is harmful.
• Educational apps, language learning tools, and creative content can enhance a child’s learning experience.
• Encourage the use of age-appropriate educational apps that align with their interests.

EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: All potential clients need to be aware that owing to the nature of our work as specialist investigators there are people who have been caught on the wrong side of the law - who are trying to discredit me - Mike Bolhuis and my organisation Specialised Security Services - to get themselves off the hook. This retaliation happens on social media and creates doubt about our integrity and ability. Doubt created on social media platforms is both unwarranted and untrue. We strongly recommend that you make up your minds concerning me and our organisation only after considering all the factual information - to the exclusion of hearsay and assumptions. Furthermore, you are welcome to address your concerns directly with me should you still be unsatisfied with your conclusions. While the internet provides a lot of valuable information, it is also a platform that distributes a lot of false information. The distribution of false information, fake news, slander and hate speech constitutes a crime that can be prosecuted by law. Your own research discretion and discernment are imperative when choosing what and what not to believe.


STANDARD RULES APPLY: Upon appointment, we require a formal mandate with detailed instructions. Please take note that should you not make use of our services – you may not under any circumstance use my name or the name of my organisation as a means to achieve whatever end.
