Childnet International has launched a resource to help parents talk to their children about online pornography.

It comes as a survey commissioned by the charity found that of more than 1,100 parents, 27 per cent say they have spoken to their child about pornography. This statistic includes 23 per cent of respondents who had a child aged 5 to 11.

Childnet says that an ongoing dialogue between parents and children about sexualised content online is vital.

For the youngest children, the priority is about “making sure they know they can turn to parents and carers with anything that worries them online” and that they “know how to keep themselves safe by understanding appropriate and inappropriate behaviours”.
