Internet protection for youngsters

INTERNET users are being urged to better protect children and young people from the everyday dangers of life online.

Parents, carers and teachers were reminded about the need to keep up with the changing nature of the internet and interactive activities such as social media, Skype, facetime, apps and games.

Member for Flynn, Ken O'Dowd said Australian children were growing up online.

"We have to do a better job protecting them from bullying, teaching them about privacy and identity theft and protecting them from accessing sites which are inappropriate for them," he said.
