Internet and Mobile Phone Safety

Internet and Mobile Phone Safety

Internet and mobile phone safety is always a concern. Parents and teachers need to be vigilant in reminding young people that these are issues to be taken seriously.
Most young people underestimate the dangers on the web.
Most young people release far more personal information than is safe.
Many parents are unaware of what their children have viewed or whom they have contacted while online.
Many young people feel that they are in control of chat-room conversations with strangers when the reality is often quite different.
Many teenagers use their mobiles to send inappropriate messages or personal contact information, only to regret it later.

If you require any more information on any of these topics there are some great websites which offer advice and support to parents. These are:
