There are many apps and websites children may be using, such as Whatsapp, Facebook, Instagram and Ask.FM. Did you know that all of the above mentioned have an age restriction of 13 as a minimum?

 

Video games are an exciting and immersive form of entertainment for children, but do you know exactly what content is included in the games your children are playing? The PEGI rating system is included on all UK video game releases, and provides legal minimum age requirements. Read the information on their website for what each age ranged game could contain, and check carefully the box for any game you buy for your children to ensure it is age appropriate.
