Today the e-safety organisation Thinkuknow are launching a brand-new public awareness campaign. Through social media, articles, blogs, films and more, they aim to get parents and carers thinking and talking about the importance of discussing sex, relationships and the internet with their children.
Today is the first day of this three month campaign, and sees the launch of their first resource entitled “The world changes. Children don’t”.
This short film that tells the age-old story of Romeo and Juliet… with a modern twist. It shows how the lives of these young lovers might play out online today, including the Lark ‘tweeting’ and Romeo ‘friending’ Juliet.
Promote Thinkuknow to your parents: The parents section of the Thinkuknow website provides information to support parents and carers to understand and respond to the risks their children may face as they grow. It covers a broad range of online safety issues from nude selfies to what to do if you think your child is being groomed online.
