Internet safety council launches early


by David Allen

For some time there has been a worry about the amount of young children who have access to the internet, some in the privacy of their own bedrooms.

With so many threats out there on the internet to children, the UK Council for Child Internet Safety has been created, which is backed by children’s charities and internet experts.

The council was due to be launched in March 2009, but following recommendations from psychologist Dr Tanya Byron, the launch has been brought forward by six months and will now be live in September 2008.

The idea behind this council is to provide information to worried parents, whose children are using the internet but who are not all that familiar with the sites that younger people tend to visit, such as FaceBook and MySpace.

The aim is to make the internet a much safer place for the younger internet user, as well as providing up to date information for parents.
