More than one quarter of UK children and young people are worried about cyber bullying, according to new research conducted for O2 UK and the NSPCC ahead of Safer Internet Day on 11 February.
A total of 27 percent of children said their biggest online concern was being bullied or someone being unkind to them. The second biggest concern (16%) was being contacted by someone they don’t know. The majority (89%) of children think that talking to parents would help keep them stay safe online, but only 35 percent of parents have done so in the last 12 months.
The survey also shows that 92 percent of parents/carers felt they know how to advise their child about online safety, but only 42 percent had set guidelines for the child’s internet use.
