Children’s Commissioner for Wales – Sally Holland

As a parent myself, I know how difficult it can be to keep on top of the pace of change in the digital world, and what those changes mean for our children.

Days like today help us all to think about the challenges our children face online, and what we as adults can do to help them manage those challenges.

Under the UN Convention on the Rights of the child, all children have a right to be safe, to privacy, to be listened to and to good quality information. It’s our duty to make sure they get these rights. From social media companies, to Governments, to parents: we all have a role to play to give our children the tools they need to navigate the digital world happily, healthily and safely.
