I wanted to share a site that could be extremely useful for many – it’s ParentInfo, a collaboration of ParentZone and CEOP who are highly regarded and active in the area of Safeguarding children.


They regularly publish articles that help parents understand issues relevant to young people today, often with superb advice on how to approach them with your child.  There is a good section concerning technology that covers topics such as sexting, to social media use or protecting your child from harmful exposure to video game content when the games are clearly rated above their age; the site is added to regularly and well worth a browse and a bookmark.

There are so many challenges for young people as they grow up, and some are also new to us as parents: some of them just didn’t exist for us when we were younger or they concern things we were not used to discussing within a family.

Their latest posts include issues surrounding body image and discussing consent with teenagers.
