Smartphones literally has brought porn to their pockets. It has never been more accessible and number of children dealing with porn addiction has gone up.
An Australian study indicates that 43% of regular pornography users were exposed to porn between 11 and 13 years of age.
A psychotherapist revealed that he had personally treated children as young as 14 for porn addiction and some young addicts spent up to 10 hours a day viewing explicit material.
These developments has led parents to install hidden spyware on their children’s phones which allows them to track their movements and even read their text messages.
Online networking giant Facebook has become a teenage battleground, fraught with dangers such as crime, bullying and the exposure of secret details.
Google has hit back at laws to prevent children from viewing internet porn claiming it was the parent’s responsibility to monitor their children’s behaviour.
