Protect Every Child Ministry
Protect Every Child is an effort to help create awareness about what it means for children to be safe on the Internet. Their safety begins with parents understanding that children and teenagers may not know how to be safe on the Internet, and parent involvement goes a long way in making sure they are safe.
The potential for harm on the Internet is great. Sixty-four percent of teenagers say they do things online they would not want their parents to know about. Fourteen percent of teenagers have met face-to-face with a person they know through the Internet. Another 40 percent report that when they receive messages online from someone they don’t know they usually reply to and chat with that person.
Although the potential for danger exists, parents should not fear technology. Instead, as Protect Every Child suggests, they can view technology as an opportunity for discipleship. Parents can help their children and teenagers set healthy parameters for using the Internet that allows them to be God-honoring in their use of technology.
NC Baptist Men have produced short videos that churches can use to help parents understand about Internet safety. The four guidebook sections to the right are companions to these videos and provide suggestions about how to promote Internet safety meetings at church and how to lead parents during these meetings.
