There is no doubt that social media has transformed the way the world communicates, particularly younger people and children.
Whilst this has undoubtedly brought benefits, it has also introduced risks for children and young people.
As a parent or carer it is important that you are aware of the various apps that might appear in your kids mobile phones. There are so many different media platforms it is sometimes difficult to keep up with what has been developed and what is currently popular.
The Hinckley police have issued a very useful guide to just some of the apps that they think you, as a carer or parent, might like tone aware of.
We think this is important advice and helps you stay aware – which may ultimately help your child, or a child in your care, stay safe and happy whilst using todays communication tools.
