Aim for Parents Tonight? Getting up to speed with emerging threats and the latest risks in order to protect your daughter on-line.
On-Line Threats Sophisticated new technologies can pose unseen potential risks. Risks come from either adults who use the internet to exploit young people sexually or from other children who subject their peers to cyberbullying.
On-Line Threats The profile of on- line abusers is changing. Psychological effects of on-line child abuse.
Sexting and On-line Pornography Dramatic increase in cases of sexting and on- line pornography with young people. Girls in particular are very secretive. Where relationships are involved, ‘intelligent’ girls appear to loose all common sense.
Sexting and On-line Pornography Problems often occur because girls are too trusting of people they ‘talk’ to on-line. The photos shared within a relationship can quickly become ‘public’ images.
Sexting and On-line Pornography It is so easy for young people to become involved in chat-rooms, roulette sites etc. PLEASE CHECK YOUR PRIVACY SETTINGS.
Sexting and On-line Pornography Those involved in sexting may be committing a criminal offence, specifically crimes involving indecent photographs.
Sexting and On-line Pornography There is a direct link between sexting and on-line pornography with grooming and sexual exploitation of children (minors). Safeguarding issues.
What is a digital footprint? Digital footprint is the size of an individual’s online presence; as it relates to the number of individuals they interact with.
When does your digital footprint start? 75% of children under two have some kind of digital footprint. 37% newborns have an on- line life from the day they are born (23% pre-birth scans uploaded) 7% under 2’s have an email address and 5% have social networking profile. 70% of mothers stated prime motivation was to share photos with family/friends.
Digital Footprints Every time an individual goes on-line they leave a trail, which forms different on-line identities.
Different Online Identities On-line activities during your daughter’s ‘private time’ will be recorded.
On-line Reputation Your daughter’s digital footprint and on-line reputation will stay with her for ever!
On-line Identity Risks Personal information is routinely collected and kept for years and years by companies and viewed by individuals looking for information. Potential risks!!
Cyberbullying Cyberbullying is the use of the internet, mobile phones and social networking sites deliberately to upset someone else. The consequences can be severe.
Cyberbullying In law, cyberbullying is incorporated into a school’s anti-bullying policy. Any cyberbullying taking place during the school day, within school will be dealt with seriously and students will face sanctions as appropriate.
Social Media Sites Schools are not responsible for activities that take place out of school hours on social media sites. Headteachers may exercise their ‘power’ to ‘enable them to police cyber- bullying carried out by pupils even at home’.
Social Media Sites ‘This is only where it is reasonable for the school to regulate the pupils conduct at the time.’ Problem: others are involved!! Ribston Hall will take very seriously issues of racial abuse, derogatory comments about the school community, for example.
Positives of the Internet 4 in 5 parents say they know what their children get up to on line 1 in 3 children say their parents have NO IDEA what they get up to on line. Get involved.
