Child safety on the net - Dr Tanya Byron and her report for the Prime minister!

As a parent and concerned citzen with a great affinity for the new world we live in, post 1995 and the emergence of the web, I must say I was in part aware of this "lady/professional/personality" from some of the regular and occassional good content AND content free TV you see in the evenings. However she is someone to take very very seriously!

She has to be one of the most articulate and careful speaking experts ive ever seen up in front of a parlimentary public hearing on BBC parliament today.

Info on her and her work and especially her commissioned report is on google and elsewhere. For any parent or concerned person its really good to look at it and be aware that Dr Tanya Byron is on the case with the backing of a wide audience. Fantastic but still a little scarey compared to when I was a kid.

Quotes from parliament today:

"so broadly welcomed"
"government to act on all recommendations"


This little guide for kids is as she says the simple and less gobbledegook version of the full report which also deserves attention

Do take time to be aware of the direction of travel she is setting and its much needed as to some extent its much needed even though im not so concerned for my own kids, more for my own subjective understandingvulnerable
