The BBC links to a report by YouthNet, and I find two things interesting. First, the fact that one of the problem is parent’s ignorance, creating a deficit of guidelines:

“One of the biggest problems for children is not that they are vulnerable but that their parents don’t know what they’re doing,” he said. [...]
“It’s important that parents have full understanding of the internet and its risks – younger people need parental direction,” he said.
Another finding confirms what we saw in this past week-end’s Lift workshop with children in Champoussin, that there is no such thing as a disconnected device for youth:
“For young people the internet is part of the fabric of their world and does not exist in isolation from the physical world“
