Protect Kids from Early & Over Sexualization
With advances in technology, kids can now go online through their smartphones and get information on just about anything. This is wonderful, but at the same time, it can be dangerous as well. While children can view informative and educational content online, they can also be expose to inappropriate content as well that adversely influence their mindset and behavior. Early and over Sexualization can ruin childhood of your kids, and hence, installing a safe browser onto your kids’ smartphone to keep him/her away from age-inappropriate content is a great idea to go with.
They Are Just Photos. How Can That Be Harmful?
Teenagers, especially girls are more cautious about their appearance and therefore, keep checking the latest vogue trends online to adore themselves accordingly. Let’s discuss the recent edition of a French Vogue magazine, featuring raunchy photographs of a 10-year old model, Thylane Loubry. The photos are criticized badly across the world and reignited a debate over the “Sexualization of young girls”.
In pictures, the young model is wearing adult makeup, stilettos, haute couture and giving proactive expressions of someone much older. The photos are completely lacking the innocence of a 10-year old child. As mentioned earlier, kids are more likely to be influenced from such things and start trying to act like their older role models to receive attention and admiration from others. If you’ve a vogue-oriented daughter, possibly she has seen the photos online on her smartphone in case it’s not protected with a kid-safe browser such as SmyleSafe browser.
