Children as young as four will learn dangers of online sex abuse as police chiefs accuse social media giants of failing to protect young people

Post by Guest on Sat Sep 08, 2018 10:36 pm

Four-year olds are to be taught about the risks of online abuse as part of a four-point blueprint by police chiefs to counter the “explosion” in child sex crimes on the internet.

The National Crime Agency (NCA) will this autumn launch its first teaching packages for four to seven year olds warning them not to share pictures, reveal personal details or go online without telling an adult.

The nationwide programme, run by 7,000 teachers and care professionals, comes amid a surge in tech ownership among nursery age pupils and growing anger from police chiefs at the failure of social media and tech firms to prevent thousands of child abuse cases.

The youngest victim of the new crime of sexual communication with a child was just five years old, one of 3,000 such offences in the first year since its introduction, according to freedom of information requests by the NSPCC.

Am I missing something? What are four year olds doing on the Internet?

My daughter is seven. She has an iPad. She only has access to kidstube.

That’s it.

What about the children on a recent report about buying extras on games, how have they got access to their parents credit card details?
One boy had run up thousands of pounds, where are the parents?
