The internet is integral to the lives of children. It opens up new opportunities and is now an essential part of their every day world whether they are using it for homework, to talk and share materials with their friends or for a multitude of other uses that are legitimate and beneficial in so many ways. It also has many dangers of which your children may not be fully aware.
