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.
Here you will find some of the internet safety story books for children aged between 4 and 14. You will find a video review where I show you through the book, as well as links to Amazon, Book Depository and Booktopia.
These are some of the many internet safety story books that have been written for children. As I find more, I will add them to this list. They are all really good books that you will find useful for starting to talk about keeping safe online.
If you have looked at these internet safety story books, you may also be interested in books on other topics too. You can find many of them listed in my sex education book review site.
