As a parent, I’m used to seeing my children glued to screens of various sizes, talking to their friends, playing games, and learning in an increasingly digital world.
The internet offers up a world of opportunity, but it isn’t without risk. As more children and young people get online, it’s important that we’re skilled up on how to keep them safe.
Last year, a groundbreaking report called ‘Disrupting Harm’ played a key role in helping us understand the online risks facing children in Ethiopia.
The UNICEF-supported research found that young people were engaging in a number of risky online activities including sending personal information – such as full name, address, or phone number – to someone online whom they have never met in person, meeting in person someone whom they first knew online but was unknown to them in the offline world, and sending a sexual image or video of themselves to someone on the internet.Add a comment Add a comment
