Protect your Child

The media has a tremendous influence upon the thinking, attitudes, language and lifestyle of children and young people.  They spend a substantial proportion of their time watching television, films and DVDs, playing computer games, listening to music and surfing the internet; with ever easier access via modern technology, such as mobile phones and wireless laptop computers. Society’s traditional and existing safeguards are failing to keep up with the speed of technological change.  Concerned parents are finding it harder and harder to supervise and monitor their children’s use of media.

 

Below are some useful links for those parents who are taking action to protect their children from this harmful media environment.
