eSafety Websites for Children
The Internet has become part of our everyday lives and is now easier to access then ever before. Use of the Internet can also have risks. Young people are more at risk of exposure to inappropriate or criminal behaviour if they are unaware of the dangers.
These dangers include:
viewing unsuitable content e.g. hate material, adult content, sites that endorse unhealthy behaviour
giving out personal information
arranging to meet an online ‘friend’
becoming involved in, or the victim of, bullying, identity theft, or making and sending indecent or illegal images
spending too much time online (internet addiction), which can effect concentration, sleep and health
copying information from the Internet or buying work from other people to use as their own.
