Modern technologies today are an integral part of growing up of children from the earliest age. The Internet has its advantages - speed and availability of information, contacts, overcoming distance.

However, negative effects as well are more widespread and we have to recognize them on time, primarily dependence from this form of communication and various forms of violence against children.

Experts warn that unfortunately there is no effective way to keep children from risks they are exposed to in that world. The only sure protection is informing children. The more children know about the risks, the greater is opportunity to recognize situations in which they may be violated or endangered.

Another problem is the addiction that threatens the health of children, because in period of growth and development, uncontrolled sitting in front of computer endangers their spine, their eyes, creates bad habits related to nutrition, jeopardizes quality of social contacts.

Therefore it is very important that children and adults, parents and teachers, pedagogues, together, help children to orient in this world and enjoy in real.
