    Peril, risk, danger, hazard

    Hello again everybody. There's another thread about the above question but it's closed so I'd like to ask the same question today.
    In particular I was trying to write a sentence about the Internet and kids, something like:

    "Parents should be very careful to protect their children from the (perils/risks/dangers/hazards) of the Internet".
    Can you help me understand what is the correct word and why, please?
    Thank you very much.
