Happy Safer Internet Day

Today is the fifth annual "Safer Internet Day", which has a focus on promoting safe internet usage awareness to children and their parents, a cause which I'm well and truly behind. It still troubles me that some parents don't seem to understand the Internet can be a dangerous place for children. I've seen parents who strictly don't allow their children to watch inappropriately age certified movies, play Cert 15/18 computer games, but when it comes to Internet usage, just leave their kids to it, completely oblivious that their children could be viewing inappropriate material, posting personal info and pictures on social networking sites, or chatting with complete strangers.
