Online Safety for Teens

Every week we seem to hear another story about how some teenager has been used because of their ignorance online.

An old friend of mine from the states who is a photo journalist produced a great video interview with a young girl who had been adopted into a loving and caring family, but also wrestled with the girl’s online presence and security. It’s worth a watch.

If you are involved with teenagers or parents, we need to keep reminding them about the dangers that are online. Telling them to keep things private and also to be aware of what they are doing online is essential.
