3 clicks from bad news

The British security firm, Kaspersky Lab, released data earlier this spring which documented that a child watching YouTube is only three clicks away from adult content.

A child watching Sesame Street on YouTube could reach  an accident video in two clicks;  it takes four clicks from Dora to reach swearing and  nudity.

Children of all ages will be spending more time online as the school year ends, so use this as a timely reminder to monitor use and teach even young children about the risks in cyberspace.
