The Internet Is One Of Our Greatest Inventions, But We Must Protect Our Children And Young People From Online Risks
The internet is one of our greatest inventions - a powerful tool that children and young people can use to learn, to express themselves and explore the world around them. However, protecting them from the risks they might face online or on their phones is vital. You wouldn't let your child go off to meet a stranger or put themselves in a risky situation - and the same rules apply to the online world. Some children are visiting adult chatrooms, viewing inappropriate content and in some cases being bullied by peers or even - in extreme situations - radicalised, and we need to protect them from these risks.
