How can we protect our children from the Internet bias that the internet has brought?
It starts with educating our children about the internet and the ways it affects them.
For example, in one study published in the journal Science , researchers asked participants to answer a series of questions about themselves, their peers, and other people they had never met before.
The study also asked participants if they had ever experienced bias on the internet, including comments about race, religion, sexual orientation, disability, and gender identity.
They found that people who experienced bias online were less likely to think critically about things, had lower self-esteem, and felt less safe than people who didn’t experience bias online.
The researchers also found that this bias in online interactions is especially harmful because it reduces the quality of people’s online interactions.
To protect our kids from the internet bias, it is important to educate them about the ways that it affects us and to help them be aware of what it means when they are exposed to it.
In our latest episode, we will take a look at how our kids are using social media, and how we can protect them from the bias they encounter online.
