Nominet’s Internet advice site, knowthenet.org.uk has launched a campaign aimed at supporting parents so they can keep up with their kids and help them stay safe online.
Knowthenet’s ‘The Social Age’ survey of parents and 8-16 year olds found that that whilst children begin exploring the web and trialling social media sites aged nine, less than a third of parents (32%) feel ‘very confident’ about helping their kids to stay safe online.
To help parents keep up, Knowthenet has launched a quiz to test their Social Age skills, along with handy guides on how to protect children online and talk to them about the issues. There’s also an infographic showing a number of other interesting statistics from the research.
