Keeping children Safe Against Online Sexual Harassment
Today 16.12.2021 Children's commissioner launched a guide for parents and carers on online sexual harassment and how they can support children to stay safe online.
It is called: Talking to your child about online sexual harassment: A guide for parents. https://www.childrenscommissioner.gov.uk/report/talking-to-your-child-about-online-sexual-harassment-a-guide-for-parents/
Although this may not be a discussion for very young children, there will be a time in your child's life that this conversation could be very helpful. Please take a look.
