We have had a number of parents contact us over the last few weeks, seeking advice around their child’s use of the internet and various platforms. As always we have lots of really useful information on our website:
One such case has involved grooming through an App, which was highlighted by a Youtuber, encouraging children to download the App to gain extra credits and hacks for games. The parent of the child is keen to warn other parents of such dangers and how easily this can happen. It is a good point at which we should remind parents that YouTube is meant for children of 13 years and over – our children should really only be watching YouTube through the You Tube Kids App or with an adult supervising.
