Grooming through the digital world

For many young people today, certainly by teenage years, the world between the online and offline world is seamless.

Friendships and relationships are created, built and maintained through the digital world as well as face to face. While this can be a positive thing, for too many young people these connections in the digital world are swiftly developing into toxic and/or dangerous relationships.

Today the BBC news (read article here) has released some information from an NSPCC study about online safety and young people. The full NSPCC report can be found here.

The NSPCC’s research suggested that platforms such as instagram are being used by perpetrators for connecting with young people , with the intent of grooming them.

When it comes to teaching about healthy relationships, the online and offline world needs to be considered, but beyond just safety rules, but rather looking at motives and needs and where people are looking for them to be met.
