Children and young people are more at risk of exposure to inappropriate or criminal behaviour if they are unaware of the dangers.

These dangers can include:

  • Viewing unsuitable content
  • Giving out personal information
  • Becoming involved in, or the victim of, bullying, identity theft
  • Making and sending indecent or illegal images
  • Spending too much time online which can effect concentration, education, sleep and health
  • Copying information from the Internet or buying work from other people to use as their own

The internet is like a magician’s hat. It’s full of exciting things to explore and children love it. But whilst they seem to know what they’re doing, sometimes it’s hard for parents to keep track.

Net Aware has got lots of tips and advice. They’re also running workshops to help you have the right conversations with your children. And they’ve even got a free helpline to give you personal advice whenever you need it.

We’ve worked with over 500 parents and carers, and 1725 young people to review social networks and apps that children use.
