(PRWEB UK) 28 May 2014
According to the article in The Guardian, dated Tuesday 13 May 2014: Internet providers urge parents to monitor children's web activity, four UK internet service providers have launched an initiative and invited parents to keep an eye on their children’s online browsing. This will include monitoring the websites the children visit, their online profiles on various online services, as well as set filters which disallow viewing of inappropriate content. The four providers, namely BT, Sky, TalkTalk and Virgin Media have started an organization, called Internet Matters, whose main objective is to provide useful advice on how to protect young people from various unsuitable forms of online communication, such as sexting, online grooming, cyberbullying and pornographic content.
The Guardian article goes on to say that the statistics are worrying. About 25 percent of the children have seen graphic sexual images by the time they are 12, while two thirds of teens have been asked to share a sexual image of themselves, 28% of kids hide the fact that they have been the victim of cyberbullying. Carolyn Bunting, general manager of Internet Matters, hopes the portal will become a household name among the families with young children.
