NEW from Childnet – how to talk to your children about online pornography In a poll conducted by ComRes of 1,000 parents, Childnet found that only a quarter of parents have spoken to their child about pornography, despite a recent conclusion from the Children’s Commissioner for England stating that ‘porn is everywhere’. To support parents and carers to have open conversations with their children about sexualised content online, Childnet have put together a resource that helps parents to start this dialogue in an age-appropriate way. The resource can be found on the Childnet’s website and as well as converstaion starters, it also offers parents information about understanding the law and links to other organisations that can provide support.
