Emerging Issues

Staying on top of emerging online risks can be a challenge for parents/guardians. New apps and sites are always emerging, known sites regularly change their protection features and those looking to harm youth are finding new ways to connect and manipulate children and youth. Below you will find information about online dangers and what you and your child can do about them.

Children 5–7 years of age

Children this age can be exposed to inappropriate content in games or videos simply by clicking on advertisements, links and suggested videos/games while they are watching videos or playing games online. The best way for parents to prevent this from happening is to supervise their child when they are watching videos or playing games online.
