The call comes amid fears that children are increasingly exposed to online pornography and forced to send indecent images of themselves to others.

"Young people tell us they are experiencing all sorts of new forms of abuse on scale never before seen."

Children are increasingly being groomed over the internet for the sole purpose of online sexual abuse, research by a child protection watchdog suggests.

Only 7% of the 1,145 online abuse cases reported to the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre in 2012 involved people trying to meet a child.

Sorry I just don’t get it any parent or other “authority figure adult” who would let a child much less a 5 year-old have unsupervised internet access doesn’t need to be around children period! Wtf sounds like something my mother would have let me do; father would have been too drunk to care. It’s called “enablers” these people who are just as bad as the vile perps. As to “blocking”; censorship; sorry anyone ever use Websense, more of a productivity reduction tool than anything else; I’ve seen it block fedex? Not sure when the age is or what type of maturity factor in letting children have 100% access to the internet is but if you’re a good parent you’ll know they can be trusted, and it’s not going to be 18.

Hi Cee, the main point is that kids need early education about safety on internet, it is not just about being supervised while on itnernet.
The point is that many "good" parents are giving instructions to kids of that age about risks of talking with strangers for example but many times forgetting to do the same related to internet safety.
The risks are becoming even greater lately as kids are getting smart phones and access to internet earlier than ever before....
