Getting clued up

Today, children and teenagers tend to know more about mobiles, the internet and social media than adults. Texting, tweeting and downloading are part of their everyday life. So to help them enjoy it safely, we all need to be as clued up as they are. That’s why we’ve created this guide. We're here to help adults understand what children really do on their mobiles and the internet. And it’s also to help you talk to your children openly about the risks, so they know how to protect themselves.
