We discussed the issues that occur at different ages and watched an extremely thought-provoking video to highlight the potential dangers that lurk online - and above all, we noted the HUGE importance of ensuring that parents understand not only the role that technology plays but also how to be there for the child to support them in their choices and decision-making.
