At this time of year, many families may be introducing new phones and tablets into the house. While these have many benefits, we of course want to make sure that children are always safe. This week, Nottinghamshire Police have released a warning for families about some incidents where children have used social media applications and ended up in contact with inappropriate individuals. More information can be found on the Nottinghamshire Police website.
We always recommend that parents monitor their children's use of social media apps and websites closely to ensure that they are kept safe. You may find the Net Aware website from the NSPCC useful in helping to support your children's safe use of the internet and electronic devices.
