I was recently having a discussion with someone about online safety and children. As any reader of this blog will know, it’s one of my favourite subjects. As we were chatting, I was asked if I felt social media platforms have a “moral duty” to stop youngsters accessing their services.
I appreciate this is a dramatic statement, but is childhood in retreat after fighting a losing battle? Are our children growing up too fast, thanks to the naivety of us mums and dads towards the online world?
I get to see three plays about Internet safety written by Konnie Huq and backed by Plusnet and Internet Matters.
To many dads with daughters, make-up is a complete mystery. I include myself in this. As the only man in my household, I am at a great disadvantage. With my kids having reached an age where they’re getting curious about make up, I increasing find myself in a position that leaves me confused. Why confused?
In our household, we’re approaching the teenager years are coming down the tracks very quickly. What’s it going to be like and will we face many challenges?
