In Australia the average age a young boy will be exposed to inappropriate content is eleven years of age. Find out what to do if your child comes across content you’d rather they hadn’t with author and parenting expert Dr Justin Coulson and the eSafety Commissioner Julie Inman Grant.

You can listen back to the other episodes of our Safety Net Series such as How to be your child's online educator (even when you feel out of your depth), Keeping kids safe online from stranger danger, and What to do when your child is bullied online.

The Safety Net Series was produced in partnership with the Office of the eSafety Commissioner. To find out more about the resources they provide for families check out their iParent portal here.
