As part of some work being undertaken by the Safer Internet Centre around the upcoming Government Internet Safety Strategy, they spoke to some young people and one question they asked what they thought that parents needed to understand better when it comes to their digital lives. Their responses included;
“I think that parents need to try and understand their children’s situation more so that they know what they are going through so that they can try and help them better.”
“They need to understand how children may feel if something goes wrong for them.”
