Parents who fail to monitor their children's use of the internet could land in jail, government warns.
The government this week launched an e-parenting programme to give online guidance on the use of social media and the internet to protect children. The programme is to begin in Western Cape and KwaZulu-Natal this year.
CapeTalk/702 listeners joined the conversation and shared their views on the topic. See below:
@RediTlhabi I reprimanded my 16yr old son after he unwittingly downloaded a YouTube porn video in my laptop! Told him porn isn't necessary.— SydneyG (@MannaTitbits) September 4, 2015
@RediTlhabi parents not being tech savvy is the problem. Not everyone has time to learn how to monitor what their kids do online.— zubayr bhyat (@zubayrbhyat) September 4, 2015
