The internet, mobile phones and devices are fantastic resources, tools and often toys for all ages. They can be fun and rewarding but come with ever increasing risks and safety issues particularly for children.
Computers are no longer just for data processing and mobile no longer just for phone calls. Both can access the internet and email, send instant messages and pictures and so much more.
Both can also be a distraction even with safe games and browsing the internet.
Parents, carers and teachers need to educate children about safe internet and mobile practices and monitor reasonable amounts of usage.
The following organisations have fantastic information on identifying and defining what the risks are, educating parents on how to keep their children safe and offer fun online games and activities for children to take part in while learning about internet and mobile safety.
