How children behave and interact themselves.

Examples such as pornography, indecent images, ignoring age ratings on games, films. The list could go on.....

Examples such as grooming(an adult pretending to be a child), any form of cyber-bullying online through social media sites, email. Identity theft. The list could go on.....
