The internet plays a vital role in all aspects of children's and young people's lives. But young people can sometimes participate in inappropriate, risk-taking or illegal behaviour online. It can be difficult for parents and carers to know how to respond and support a child.

That's why we have created a guide for parents of children and young people who have got into trouble online. It's designed to answer some of the immediate questions you may have after learning that something is happening, or has happened, in your child's online life.

These problems can include:

  • Accessing adult pornography
  • Sexting and sending or receiving sexual images
  • Viewing indecent images of children
