Global One (G1)— Do your children play video games? Well, they may not be as safe as you think.
Authorities in the United Kingdom launched a children’s web series to tackle the growing threat of online grooming of children.
The National Crime Agency (N.C.A) launched the series to educate children as young as four-years-old about the potential dangers of playing video games. This web-based education comes amid the growing threat of online grooming.
According to reports, referrals to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has soared in recent years. The tech industry reports online child sexual abuse to the US-based organization.
Here in the U.S., one organization is also on a mission to educate parents about the growing threat of online grooming. Recently, the Greenhand Project launched an education initiative to help keep kids — as young as four-years-old — safe from online grooming.
The book is called “Mimic Magic.” It’s a picture and activity workbook for parents to do with their children. The goal is to educate children early about relationships that may not be safe for them.
