The Blue Whale game has exposed the vulnerability of children as online games may prove disastrous for them if the parents do not keep a tab on their Internet surfing, PK Upadhyay, district-inspector of schools, said.
"Parents should have access to their child's computer and mobile phone to regularly track the sites being surfed by them. There is also a need to monitor their social media accounts on WhatsApp, Snapchat, Facebook and Twitter," said Mr Upadhay.
"Parents should check their call logs, messages and search history. Spy software can also be installed on their devices to track their activity," Mr Upadhay added.
The parents should spend more time with their children everyday to provide guidance, he added.
