CYBER CRIME- “STOP IGNORING”

VIVEK HIGH SCHOOL

Sector – 38 B

Circular No.11                                                                                                January 30, 2015

Dear Parents,

CYBER CRIME- “STOP IGNORING”

As we progress towards a healthy life and presumed efficiency, we think that we are becoming smarter and are working better. However, there is an alert, we need to wake up to. We need to know that in this world of possibilities, something more dangerous is happening in the younger circuit. All this is happening at the cost of our families largely through social media.

Keeping that in mind, here are some facts on cyber crime and cyber-plugin reality. These are not custom-made but our children are hooked on to an irreversible change. They have been entrapped by the computer bug.

Hip hopping may not always be well-intentioned and it’s leading to a lot of panic, anxiety and maladies that are leading to a new factor of crime in our homes.

The following points need to be considered by all of us:

  1. Let’s supervise
  2. Be aware of laws related to cyber facility
  3. Age appropriate downloading according to child’s needs and requirements
  4. Teach them information management
  5. It is Killing talent as children are just plugged to the computer instead of working.
  6. Changing work culture and ethics of working
  7. True spirit of hard work is dying
  8. Leading to flexi-working
  9. Communication and emotional links are breaking, only virtual relationships are existing

FACTS

In due course of time children will become paperless and unaccountable and will lack real interaction on how to present themselves and deal with situations and people.

We need to:

  1. Safeguard our children.
  2. Educate them.
  3. Face reality & not shirk & blame.
  4. Focus on improvement for better life.

 

 

Children are seeking quick-fix remedies and their exciting journeys are leading to a fashionable disease through computer.

There is a combined responsibility to bring a struggling balance between  keeping pace and in handling of the new computer stress. As parents we need to be more mindful and aware of what our children are doing at home. In school there is no provision of opening social media links.

We urge parents to look into and understand how dangerous limited or lack of information about cybercrime could be. Several cases have been reported where sociopaths have picked up personal details from facebook accounts of young children and then threatened them of dire consequences if they do not respond to their demand for money.

This is serious business and we all together the parents, society and school have to make a commitment to create a safe environment to protect our children.

Please find enclosed the following for your ready reference

1. An article by one of our own students

2. Information on cyber laws.

We solicit your co operation for the safety and well being of our children.

 

Warm regards

 

 

 

Ms. P. K. Singh

Internet addiction in children

Are you feeling upset and angry quite often? Experiencing moodiness when you are unable to access your computer? Do you feel incomplete unless you have the screen monitor in front of you? You are one among the many folks who are facing the problem of internet addiction. This is a very real and growing health concern. Here’s what you need to watch out for.

Internet addiction is when you are so addicted to being online( that includes social networking, gaming, chat, adult content, work) that you cannot function normally as an individual without being on it.

People who are internet addicts will find it soothing to be online and chatting to their friends or virtual interactions but be uncomfortable in a real social situation. There is a sensation of being disconnected when they interact with people offline.

There is no track of time while using the internet, the individual may neglect food, self care, hygiene and other responsibilities in the home or around them.

The individual may also be addicted to certain kinds of content or online activity such as gambling. This is still more a serious problem and will need to be addressed at the root level which may in reality be an addiction to something else altogether.

If your child is withdrawn, angry, upset or not participating in activities except online, you may want to pay attention to his or her online activities and make them participate in other interests over a period of time.

If the time spent is inappropriate, or the child finds it difficult to switch off the system/ shut it down at night, there is a problem. Do check if it is a regular occurrence or just a one time incident for some download that he or she may be doing. Waking up at odd hours and chatting and staying online without sleep is all signs of  a problem.

Check if your child reacts very strongly if you cut off internet access. Do they appear disturbed, depressed or overly angry? You may need to seek outside help if such symptoms are seen.

Keep a tab on the hours of internet use and also keep track of your child’s academic life. If they are falling behind or unable to perform due to any reason, then do check with the teacher about their behavior. Talk to your child, find time to discuss with your child and let them know it is okay to make mistakes but it is important to not let anything be the master of their time and life.
