Videos and websites that have violent images
A lot of people use the Internet to post violent content. That information is not good for anyone to watch. If you see something online that has violent content, close it out. You should tell your parent too, because they want what is best for you and can help you avoid it in the future.
Staying away from pornography
It is important to remember that God made some things special for marriage. It might be embarrassing, but you should speak to your parent if you stumble upon pornography. Your parent loves you and can help you if needed. There are several accountability software to help students avoid inappropriate websites.
Websites promoting hate or discrimination
While exploring the Internet, remember that God calls his people to love others. Avoid any website that hurts people due to the color of their skin, their religion, or where they come from. Those websites are hurtful and encourage ungodly behavior.
