Wodensborough has teamed up with Parent Info to provide you with articles, videos and Q&As, and will cover difficult topics like sex, relationships and the internet, body image and peer pressure, as well as broad parenting topics like “how much sleep do teenagers need?”. Like CEOP’s Thinkuknow programme, some of the content covers internet safety, but it all starts from the assumption that young people don’t separate their online and offline lives, and that the issues for parents are often the same. The aim is ultimately to help children to be discriminating, web-literate and resilient.
Parent Info is a collaboration between CEOP and Parent Zone. Parent Zone was founded in 2005 and has a track record of providing information, support and advice to parents. In recent years, Parent Zone’s work has focused on the impact of digital technologies on families. We provide information, resources and training for parents and those who work with them. CEOP is the child protection command of the National Crime Agency. CEOP reaches over three million children and young people a year through its Thinkuknow programme and regularly conveys its vital online safety messages to over 100,000 practitioners (such as social workers, teachers and police officers) registered to their network, who cascade these messages directly to children and young people.
