Whether it be mobile phones, computers or tablets, most children start using the internet at earlier ages because they live surrounded by technology.
Even if you want to delay their access for as long as possible, it has become increasingly more difficult to avoid it. The screens have sneaked into our lives and to those of our children, so much so, the WHO has had to indicate the maximum hours of use for children under 5, due to the negative effects that the screens can have on sleep and physical activity.
According to a recent study (New pornography and changes in interpersonal relationships), carried out by the Youth and Social Inclusion Network and the University of the Balearic Islands, at least one in four men has begun to consume pornographic content on the Internet before the age of 13 years and, most alarmingly, the average age of access to porn for the first time, has advanced to 8 years for the easy access to mobile technology.
Given this scenario, it is essential to use tools to protect children on the internet and prevent them from accessing inappropriate content for their age.
