:globe_with_meridians: Introduction
With technology all around us, teaching kids to be safe online has never been more important. From a young age they’re surrounded by endless information and, unfortunately, some hidden online threats too. As research suggests, the journey into the digital realm often begins as early as two years old.

:rocket: The Digital Journey Begins Early

The early adoption of digital devices opens vast educational opportunities for children. However, this rapid integration also introduces new dangers. Pew Research Center reports that 60% of children under 12 are using smartphones, many starting before age 5. This early immersion highlights the urgent need for cybersecurity education for our youngest technology users, ensuring they navigate the virtual world with confidence and caution.

:shield: Cyber Risks for the Youngest Users
The online world presents numerous challenges for young, inexperienced minds. Exposure to inappropriate content, the risk of phishing scams, and the danger of cyberbullying are just a few of many online threats. A shocking one in twenty children experience online sexual risks or harm​​, while approximately one in four young people (in the US) face identity theft or fraud before reaching 18​​.

:mortar_board: Why Early Cyber Education Matters

In response to these growing concerns, early cyber education is not just a choice but a necessity. Equipping children with the knowledge to distinguish between safe and risky online practices is crucial. It’s about establishing foundational knowledge for digital resilience and responsible online behaviour.

Alongside children’s education, it’s vital to empower parents and guardians with the knowledge to guide and protect their families online. Parents need resources to help them on setting parental controls, recognizing signs of cyberbullying, and more.
