2 girls on internet and needing to read some internet safety story books

The best internet safety story books for children

As a parent living in the 21st century, it is important to have some internet safety story books for your children on your bookshelf! As soon as you start letting your child play on a tablet or your phone, you really do need to consider talking about online safety. 

The chances of your child accidentally stumbling across online pornography is quite high. It is actually harder to avoid sexually explicit images,  than it is to find them. You can learn more about the risks of online pornography to children in this blogpost of mine. 

And research tells us that the best approach that a parent can take, is to prepare your child so that they know what to do when (not if) they stumble across pornography.  

A great way to start talking, is with the use of some internet safety story books.  Here you will find some of the few books that are available. Some talk about porn, whilst others talk about being online in general.

And remember, the first conversation about this topic is the hardest. It does get easier! 

You can find more books about different topics in the main list of Sex Education Books for Children

You’ll find more information about sex education in my Sex Education 101 page.
