Internet courses are required, and internet addiction and fraud should also be prevented

During the period of “no-stop”, online courses have become the norm of school education, and mobile phones have become an indispensable tool for students to study at home. Children holding mobile phones will naturally inevitably brush web pages or play games. According to “Mobile Internet Data Display During the 2020 Epidemic”, mobile games broke out during the epidemic, and a popular game exceeded 54 million daily, which naturally included student players.

At the same time, because children were fooled into watching live broadcasts and playing games on the Internet, cases where parents suffered huge economic losses occurred frequently in many parts of the country. Chongyang 11-year-old girl fell in love with online games during online classes and wiped out 88,000 yuan to reward game anchors; Huang from Jinjiang, Fujian, believed that “recharge rebate” was defrauded by 160,000 yuan; Hao Hao from Changsha, Hunan watched live rewards 7 10,000 yuan; Orange, Huizhou, Guangdong, was cheated for 190,000 yuan by participating in the “part-time brushing of bills”…

How to help children prevent Internet addiction and fraud? Not only during the epidemic prevention period of the home, even if it is usually a test for parents, it is also a serious challenge. This requires close cooperation with the school and frequent communication with teachers. The most important thing is to ensure good family education.

Parent-teacher collaboration to help children quit Internet addiction

First of all, parents need to work out rules for Internet access with their children. We are now in the age of the Internet, and we cannot deprive our children of their right to go online, but we must tell him the rules of online security. Set rules at the beginning of the Internet, for example, children can’t secretly play games with their parents; play games must be limited in time; parents must agree to purchase game equipment; etc.

Secondly, it is necessary to supervise children online. It is necessary to supervise the child’s performance in online classes, as well as the quality of his homework, and even the situation of playing online games. After all, the child is a child and has poor self-control. It is unrealistic to expect him to consciously go online at home.

Parents who work from home can stay with their children and understand what he is doing. It is best to go online with their children, participate in his online games, and guide their children to chat online. If the parents give the children enough warmth and companionship, the child’s Internet addiction will not be so big. Parents who need to go to work can install cameras according to the situation and conduct online supervision. When necessary, you can use Internet addiction software “shutdown king” “blue Xiaomi” and other monitoring.

Finally, parents should assist the management with the teacher. Through parent-teacher cooperation, we will jointly develop new interests and hobbies of our children, and replace the Internet with new behaviors and new things. For example, teachers encourage children to read, do small science experiments, parents carry out some recreational activities at home, sing, play table tennis, etc. The child’s attention.

Educate children to prevent telecommunications fraud

Telecommunication fraud refers to the criminal act of making false information through telephone, Internet and SMS, setting up a scam, and carrying out remote and contactless fraud on the victim, inducing the victim to make money or transfer money to the criminal. In the face of online fraud, it is more important to prevent trouble than to repair the sheep. To enable children to have the awareness and ability to prevent fraud from an early age requires the joint efforts of families and schools.

Schools should focus on controlling children’s consumption patterns and channels, strengthen education in school discipline, school regulations, and interpersonal communication, and prevent and control them in terms of use and interpersonal relationships. Parents should manage their money, including the passwords and verification codes of bank cards, Alipay wallets, and WeChat wallets, and block fraud from the source. Families and schools should strengthen the anti-fraud education of children, let him recognize the routines of telecommunications fraud, and improve his awareness of telecommunications fraud.

1. Commonly used routines in telecommunications fraud

(1) Pretend to be a fraud by postal, telecommunications, public security bureau, court, procuratorate and other staff;

(2) Defraud by paying deposits such as “Some and Some Program Wins”;

(3) “Guess who I am” pretending to be an acquaintance for fraud;

(4) Online banking cipher device upgrade to obtain account and password for fraud;

(5) Virtual kidnapping and other frauds based on the payment of ransom;

(6) When buying online, let the buyer enter the phishing website to scam;

(7) Issuing “subsidies” to lure fraud;

(8) Fabricate family members to scam;

(9) Pretend to be a triad and threaten to ask for money and other frauds;

(10) Trojan horses embedded in QR codes or hidden Trojan horse links in SMS messages are used for fraud.

2. Educate children to do “five differents”

(1) Non-disclosure: Do not disclose personal information, deposits, bank cards, etc. of yourself and family to the other party;

(2) Do not believe in credulity: Do not believe in unclear phone calls or cell phone text messages, including rhetoric or alarmism;

(3) No transfer: This is the most important thing. You cannot scan the QR code provided by a stranger, nor can you transfer money to a stranger or unknown account;

(4) Don’t be greedy and cheap: know that pies don’t fall out of the sky, pies are actually traps, so we must overcome the temptation to be greedy and cheap;

(5) Do not use public WiFi to use online banking: WiFi in public places is easy to be implanted into the Trojan by criminals and steal account information and passwords. It is recommended to use carrier traffic and try not to use public WiFi;

(6) Report in time: In case of being cheated, immediately freeze the bank card and report to the public security organ, you can dial 110 directly, provide the fraudster’s account number and contact phone number and other details. The sooner the report is made, the possibility of recovering the fraud The greater the sex!

3. Cultivate financial quotient for children

The so-called financial quotient (FQ) is a person’s ability to recognize and control money, the intelligence in finance, and the wisdom of financial management. It includes two abilities: one is the ability to correctly understand money and the laws of money, and the second is the ability to correctly apply money and the laws of money.

(1) Educate children to understand money. The “cognition” of money mentioned here is not only the denomination of money, but more importantly, the “value” of money. Otherwise, the child will treat the amount as a number, and feel that there is not much difference between spending 10 yuan and 1000 yuan-just press two zeros. Children who spend a lot of money to reward the anchor often have this problem.

(2) Let the children know how the money came from. The 10-year-old Xiaoqiang (pseudonym) from Xinmi, Henan, was addicted to online games and secretly recharged his mother’s 40,000 yuan savings, including 20,000 yuan for themselves and 10,000 yuan for classmates. Xiaoqiang’s mother said in tears that she only earned one yuan by carrying a bag of cement, and she had to carry more than 40,000 bags of cement for the more than 40,000 yuan!

For a child like Xiaoqiang, parents should let him experience the feeling of carrying cement. It doesn’t matter if you don’t carry a bag. You can divide a bag of cement into several parts and let him carry it back. After finishing the bag, let him talk about his feelings and understand his mother. Hard work; let him count again: how many times and how long did he have to carry his back to carry 40,000 bags and earn 40,000 yuan. In this way, children can understand that money is hard to come by personal experience, so as to educate children to respect their parents’ labor achievements and how to cherish them. It can be said that there is no real education without experience. An unforgettable experience is better than 10,000 preaching by parents!

(3) Instruct children to learn to manage money. First, let the child learn to be the master. When a child has the experience of being a master, he will reasonably arrange his income and expenditure, and he will not squander his property. Second, encourage children to participate in savings. We can learn from the practice of French parents and set up an independent bank account for the child when he is about 10 years old and transfer a sum of money, which is conducive to fostering the child’s economic independence. Again, cultivate children’s bookkeeping habits. The advantage of bookkeeping is that parents can use this to observe their children’s consumption trends, and if there are deviations, they can be corrected in due course. Bookkeeping is very helpful to develop children’s digital concepts and develop good financial management habits. Again, to teach the child will cost money. Let children learn to shop around and learn to compare. Let him understand that shopping is actually a matter of learning, money should be spent reasonably, wisely and unfairly. Finally, control children’s bad consumption behavior. In addition to controlling the unhealthy consumption of children’s online games, parents must also limit their children’s consumption behaviors such as comparable consumption.

(4) Educate children to promote the virtue of thrift. “It’s stupid to save money but not to save”, this is a kind of financial concept of the British. Parents should educate their children to learn to plan carefully, develop a good habit of diligence and frugality, and not be a “prodigal”.

In short, during the online class, don’t give your child a mobile phone and you’ll have nothing to do. Parents still have a lot to do.
