    Kids not as 'net-savvy' as the media would like to make out.

    In intersting article on The Register based on an EU survey of children conducted by the London School of Economics:

    Parents who think their tearaway hacking kiddies are seeing all sorts of things they shouldn't online are buying into some of the top myths about children on the web, according to a new report.
    Poll: Porn-watching, net-savvy kids are a myth ? The Register

    And the full report can be downloaded from here: EU Kids Online - EU Kids Online - Research - Department of Media and Communications - Home

    Given the search history I found yesterday, I wonder how economical with the truth some of the respondents were being.

    The report makes very intersting reading. I am quite surprised that the UK comes out of it very well in how children conduct themselves online, perhaps our parents and schools are better at educationg childen about potential risks.
    In fact, the section where it asks 'Whether parents, peers or teachers have ever suggested ways to use the internet safely' shows the UK to be highest in the EU when it comes to teachers imparting advice with 85% of children saying thay have had internet safety advice from teachers and 71% from parents (only beaten by Ireland at 72% for parental advice). It's a facinating read.
