Molehills and mountains

The dangers of the Internet for children are always greatly exaggerated to suit whatever is the agenda of the day. Younger children's Internet activities should be under the full control of parents, and by the time they reach puberty they ought to be knowledgeable enough to stay safe. By which I mean not meeting up with strangers - there is no credible evidence that looking at porn is likely to harm any but a very small minority.
