#DigitalParenting Resource: Protecting Children’s Privacy Online with @comparitech

I like this resource looking at managing and protecting children's privacy online. As they say 'better to hear it from a parent than learn it from a stranger or God-knows-who online'. As I wrote in Raising Children in a Digital Age, conversation is key in managing your child's use of digital (rather than burying your head in the sand in the face of all the terrifying media stats).
