Protecting children

Online

Although educational and good for communicating through the internet can pose some dangers to children who can reveal information about themselves, particularly on forums and in chat rooms. They can also come across inappropriate content or be subject to bullying online – via computer or mobile phone. But there are various steps you can take to help keep them safe.
