Children and young people’s lives have changed dramatically because of the coronavirus. With social distancing measures, schools closures and self-isolation, children could be spending more time at home and online. And while the internet is a great way for children and young people to stay in touch with their friends and keep busy while restrictions are in place, it can also bring risks. Now more than ever it’s important to talk to children about staying safe online and about the apps and sites they’re using.
