Children and young people spend a lot of time online. It is a great way for them to learn, socialise and play.
But children are more vulnerable to the dangers that the internet pose. It is easy for them to see content that is inappropriate for them such as sexually explicit content, drug abuse or violence.
The NSPCC provides some excellent information and advice on keeping children safe online. Talking to children is one of the best ways to keep them safe by making them aware of the risk. Visit the NSPCC website for further advice:
