Technology has improved rapidly in the last decade. Less than fifteen years ago, the idea of an internet connecting people from all over the globe seemed like a fairy tale.
Today, it is a reality and it has certainly changed our lives for the better. We can communicate and share photos with others at the speed of light, we have instant access to a base of knowledge that is far superior than we ever imagined, and we can even conduct business from the comfort of our own homes.
However, this technology has also brought some dangers into our homes. No longer do we have to worry about strangers approaching our children when they are out of sight, we also have to worry about strangers approaching our children through our internet connections.
We also have to worry about another problem we never had to face as children: cyber bullying. Once reserved for the school yard, bullying can now take place online and have have horrible effects on our children.
