Infographic: What your children are hiding from you online

Parents, do you know or think you know what are your children’s activities online? Are you sure that you are seeing what they are doing or have done? Do you think you should be worried about them going online most of the time?

If any of them is your question, you should take a good look at this infographic. Most of the time, your children might want you to think you know what they are doing. In fact, I believe some of them are so good at doing that.

Some results from the Survey:

  • 1 in 3 Singapore teens have had experience with cyber bullying (victimised, instigated, witnessed)
  • Nearly half (44%) of teens feel more accepted on social media than in person
  • 4 in 5 have posted or done something risky online, which includes posting their phone number (45%) and home address (34%)
  • Alarmingly, half (51%) believe they can eventually delete any content they choose to share
  • When it comes to parental supervision, 2 out of 3 teens change their online behavior if they knew their parents were watching.
  • In fact, 9 in 10 teens have purposely taken action to hide their online behavior from their parents
