New technologies, young people and offending behaviour

Abstract

The Internet has broadened many aspects of our lives in untold positive ways. For children it provides incredible opportunities to learn, socialise and play, yet it also brings new risks and dangers into their lives. Professionals working in childcare increasingly have to help children and young people balance risks and opportunities online. It is normal for young people to experiment and explore their own sexual identity, but new technology has made it easier for individuals to make mistakes in relation to sexual behaviour; the realities of sexual offending and online sexually problematic behaviours need to be recognised.
