    To parents, ignorance is bliss. Lmao, maybe do not put a electronic items that have online to your kids, why can't you take them to a park or a trail to play explore and image. Oh wait, it easier to just put a phone or tablet in there hands, well fyi being a parent is not easy, infact the word parent has nothing to do with being easy. If you can't take thdm to a park, them do stuff with them at home that keeps them away from anything online. Its not hard or expensive to do activities with kids. Even alot of crafts for kid, you have what u need at home. You can make puppets out of old socks, a fort out of boxes. Oh wait thats to hard right?
