When it comes to topics of relationship, the male and female genders get emotional and defensive. The reason behind this is simply because both parties always have a point they want to prove as regards different topics being discussed. This new study below points towards the reality that an average Nigerian can become an insensitive love-cheat while in a relationship with an opposite sex.
Considering the current lifestyle of fierce desire to survive and be comfortable at all cost, most Nigerians these days find it easy to twist quotes and theories as regards human relationship to justify their disloyalty to their partners. Many use the slogan “he or she is not the only person on earth”. Cheating has been derailed to be ‘sleeping with a third party while in a relationship with someone else’. Actually, cheating covers or should we say cuts across different dimensions of human behaviour.
SHARING AFFECTION WITH A THIRD-PARTY
In this context, there is no sexual relationship yet but already, emotions have been transferred from one party to another who are not in any official intimate relationship at the moment. A man can cheat on his wife by sharing deep affection and emotions with a female colleague at the office. This is pure cheating irrespective of the fact that there was no sexual contact yet. Many Nigerians are guilty of this act and when confronted, most say: “It is not safe to gather all your eggs in one basket”.
When what should be shared with a lover or partner with whom there is an official relationship such marriage or courtship, is shared with a third party on the grounds of affection and sensual connection, then the perpetrator of this act is a cheat. No two ways about it.
It takes being average to think and behave like this. So, an average thinking Nigerian stands a high chance of being a love-cheat any day, anytime, anywhere. Thinking deeper and above the average is the starting point for you to live above a cheating lifestyle.
In a higher institution somewhere in Nigeria, a survey was quietly taken in different departments and it was discovered that almost 50% of males in a class have the tendencies of bunking their lovers or partners to follow some ladies in their classes.
A second survey was taken on Nigeria’s Facebook space over several months and some new social behaviourial changes found was alarming as regards how quick and desperate an average Nigerian is willing to cheat on his /her partner if given the opportunity. Conclusions were drawn from the threads of comments made by men on some female figures timelines and vice versa. These comments tells what goes through their minds while social networking with others on social media. This is one of the reasons why wives /husbands are taking Facebook messenger and Whatsapp chat history checks on their partners smartphone seriously to see if their partners are cheating on them emotionally and sexually over the internet.
This study after a careful analysis deduce that an average Nigerian whose thinking is average can become an uncontrollable love-cheat when it come to relationships.
How To Protect Your Child From Online Sex Predators
BARK industry’s Sloane Ryan recently published a chilling investigative article on what it’s like to be an 11-year-old on the internet today. The article which quickly went viral prompted the question: how do I protect my child from online predators?
As an African parent, you might feel that this doesn’t concern you because it hasn’t been investigated here. However, cybercrimes are universal and child predators exist everywhere.
Why You Need To Protect Your Child From Online Predators
I joined Facebook when I graduated from secondary school and started becoming aware of the digital space. Though I dropped the occasional photo, I wasn’t active on the platform. By the time I became active, I was in my early 20’s and a little bit more discerning. The main story here is that the day I decided to clear unread messages that had piled up over the years, I was in shock at some of the propositions I had received.
My age and pictures were up, and these people knew I was underage. Considering how impressionable teenage years are, what would have happened if I engaged?
For most Millenials and Generation Z (those born in the late 90s – 2000s), owning or using a mobile phone is totally normal. In fact, we have been so merged with digital devices that it’s hard to separate our lives from it. It’s required in some schools, needed for assignments, and serves as a portable office.
Also, phones are so cheap these days, with N5,000 you can purchase an internet-enabled phone and a SIM card. Kids as young as 8 years old can easily access the Internet and are increasingly adept at multiplayer games and social media sites like Instagram and Tik-Tok where these predators lurk. If adults face cyber harassment, how much more kids?
Steps to safeguard your child from online predators
So, what can you do as a parent to protect them? My first knee jerk reaction is to say “No phones till they are 18” but common sense tells me it’s unrealistic. Here are more realistic and actionable steps that can be applied:
Find apps that can monitor your child’s presence online
There are free and paid parental monitoring apps available on Android and iPhone app stores. These will enable you to set some restrictions and supervise your kids’ activities online. In addition, you can set an alert for certain phrases used by harassers.
Speak to them about signs they should be wary of
Based on the report, there are certain phrases used by these predators, including asking children to consider them as just an “internet boyfriend”. Have a talk with your kids about securing their pages and being careful about friend requests.
Have agreed times for using these devices
Set specific times they can use these devices. Depending on their age, you can insist that it should not be used without supervision.
All passwords must be public
You should be aware of the passwords they use. Also, develop a system to create secure passwords that they can remember but will be tough for hackers.
There must be permissions before downloading a new app
Before they download any new app, they should ask for permission first. As a Parent, you should test run these apps and research how safe they are before they can use them
List of apps you can use to monitor your child’s activity online
Here is a list of parental monitoring apps available on app stores.
Google Family Link for parents
The Family Link app lets you set rules on using the Internet that can guide them as they explore online. It also recommends apps that are safe for your kids to use.
This app detects messages containing cyberbullying, sexting, signs of depression or suicidal thoughts, and many others — without you having to spend hours reading your child’s messages. Bark supports dozens of popular social media platforms, along with email, and Android/iOS text messaging. This app helps a parent to manage their Bark.us account, including reviewing potential issues, adding children, and connecting accounts. You can find it on Google Play and Apple stores.
The free version of is one of the most comprehensive parental control apps around. It enables you to set rules and time schedules, block pornography and other unsuitable content. For more features, you have to purchase a paid version.
The Kidlogger is very good at tracking what your children type and the websites they visit. In addition, there’s a voice-activated sound recorder which can inform you who they have conversations with online. For older kids, you can select what to monitor that would not intrude on their privacy.
The FamilyShield is a free service owned by OpenDNS. It automatically blocks domains that OpenDNS has flagged under the headings “tasteless, proxy/anonymizer, sexuality, or pornography”. Besides using it on PCs and mobile devices, you can also apply it to your network router and filter all the traffic that passes through it.
Spyrix free keylogger
Though Keyloggers are often used by crooks to capture passwords, the Spyrix Free Keylogger helps you see exactly what your kids are doing on the internet.
Kaspersky safe kids
The Kaspersky Safe Kids app is parental control software for all devices – desktop and mobile – with both free and paid-for versions. The free option has a filtering option so your kids can’t see inappropriate content online. You can also manage their app time use. For more features like a battery and location tracker, you will need to get the paid version.
Is it going to be easy to protect a child from online predators?
It might be easier to apply these steps to children than teenagers. Particularly because they might feel you are intruding on their privacy. So if you are concerned about this, for young adults from 16 above, only set alerts for certain words and not to completely have access. Also, equipping your child with skills for the digital age is necessary, but keeping them safe at this time is also important.
