In todays Digital Families podcast Kayelene and I discuss “Online Child Abuse” How can we tackle this insidious and horrific crime as a community.

“Self produced child abuse” is an overwhelming problem for law enforcement which has escalated during Covid19, with more and more children being blackmailed or co-erced to share child abuse material to paedophiles through online channels.

What can we, as parents do to protect our children whilst they are online, as well as to help empower our children to protect themselves from online harm?
