About children and Internet

I came across dzieckowsieci.pl (page in Polish). The initiative's goal was (is) to make children and parents more avare of the dangers Internet brings. It's a good idea, but I have my notes about the material I read.

First thing is that one of the points from parents' guidelines says not to use multiple accounts, because it's easier to trace child movements this way. For me, children should have their privacy and looking into their browser history is something that shouldn't be done. It's acceptable only in extreme cases.

What's more? Authors of the site concentrate on sexual abuses. They write nothing about people making children install troyan horses, spam-sending software and such things.
