How can children be protected on the internet?
We are all confined to our homes during this crisis period. Parents are mostly working from home, while the children do their school work. They can no longer see their friends, and tend to fall back on virtual contacts and social networks. We worry about them and at times feel out of date, powerless to protect them. The internet has become omnipresent in our everyday lives. A source of knowledge, a place to play and communicate with their friends, the web also harbours many dangers for our children.
