Children’s engagement with the internet and social media

The Children’s Commissioner for England has published a report looking into how well children are prepared to engage with the internet. Findings include: opaque and lengthy social media terms and conditions mean children unknowingly waive privacy rights; a Mumsnet survey of nearly 900 parents of children aged 2-18 showed that 73% were concerned about their children accessing inappropriate material online, 49% were worried about their child oversharing personal information, and 41% felt they needed more advice to make informed decisions about their children’s online use. Recommendations include: a champion for children’s rights online is needed to enforce their rights with social media companies; an obligatory digital citizenship programme for 4 to 14 year-olds should be set up.

Film warning about online grooming

Leicestershire Police has made its film to raise awareness of the dangers of online grooming publicly available. Based on the story of teenager Kayleigh Haywood, the film highlights how quickly and easily children can be groomed online without them or those around them knowing it is happening. Kayleigh’s love story is available to watch online in eight different versions, including a signed version, and audio described version and versions translated into five languages. It has previously been shown to schoolchildren aged 11 and above in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland in controlled screenings by specially trained officers.
