If a child is online, what is it doing? Let’s stop online violence together for the benefit of all children!
Many children think that if they are not online, they do not exist. They are neglecting their personal relationships in order to become visible and known on social media. But what is real and what isn’t for children on the internet? As even very young children use video sharing sites with little or no supervision, they believe the online word to be safe for them. Later, when they start to use social media, they still believe all headlines, articles and content are true and can be trusted. Children want to trust and believe in those around them, “friends”, acquaintances, they don’t doubt. And this can be used against them by indecent people, adults and children alike.
