Actions To Take When Your Child Become A Victim Online
In my previous article, I have talked about some of the ways that children can become a victim of cyber prostitution online. This can affect them psychologically and may become non-active as they continue to live in fear. In this article, I want to look at some of the steps that you can take when your child becomes a victim online. Follow me as we will look at this step together in this article.
Here are some of the steps you can take:
#1 Report the offence to the Internet Service Provider
The very first thing for you to do is to report the case to the internet service provider. When you do that, it will be very easy for them to probe further or block that IP address from having access to their network.
#2 Change the online information
The next major step that you need to take in order to help the child is to change the online information of the child. You might need to have a closer look at his account online. This can give you a hint into what caused the problem in the first place. It will also ensure that the loopholes are blocked once and for all.
#3 No login
You have to encourage the child, not to log in to websites where bullying occurs. If he does not login to the website where the bullying is taking place, he will be able to block the source of the threats. This will allow the child to stay safe for the time being.
#4 Ignore any calls from the online predator
There is a high tendency that the predator might start calling to demand compensation or other monetary benefits from the parents. Some of them might also resort to blackmail in order to get more money. You have to make sure that you avoid them and that you do not pick any of their calls.
#5 Block the offender
There is a need for you to block the offender’s email address and screen name so that they cannot contact the child. You need to blacklist them at all points so that your child can have peace. If possible, you have to report the matter to law enforcement agents in your area.
