Childnet Online Sexual Bullying Advice

Childnet have released a new resource for parents of children aged 9-12 to talk about the issue of online sexual bullying. A very difficult area to discuss so this should help parents. The video is quite hard-hitting so great care will be needed, but as Childnet says, "it's the thing that is happening online but nobody is talking about."

There is a video and a downloadable leaflet HERE.

TikTok Safety Feature Information

With TikTok surging in popularity, including children deliberately increasing their followers to 1,000 so that they can go live, it's good to see TikTok making more controls available for parents. The features, which are available via Family Pairing, include the ability to prevent the child searching and preventing strangers from seeing the childs' post.

Parents can follow THIS LINK for more information on the new and the older features.
