The world is a much smaller place thanks to the use of the internet and social media such as Facebook and Twitter. Children, even in primary schools, are accessing these apps despite the legal age for having an account being 13!
We want to help you educate your child about the dangers of these sites as well as the positives they get from them. It is important children understand that although the person they are talking to online says they are an 11 year old girl interested in Little Mix and the Kardashians, they could just as easily be a predator ready to exploit your child.
This information is not aimed to frighten you, it is to help you make sure your child safe on line.
