A new language for parents to learn

An article in the Shropshire Star looks at the online code language used by children and young people today and urges parents to learn these codes used, to help keep their children safe. Codes such as PIR (Parent in room) and LMIRL (Lets meet in real life) are said to be used by children to try and keep their conversations private and away from their parents.  Worryingly it is also reported that child abusers are now also using these codes to help pose more realistically as a child and to gain the trust of victims.

This just highlights that e-Safety remains an evolving subject and one which adults and children alike need to keep educated and well informed about.
