Stranger Danger!

BBC News CEOP cartoon warns young children of strangers online
Strangers are not just people we see in person, they are on the internet too! This is why it is extremely important to never talk to anyone you don't know online. Whether it's through a chat room or playing a game, never talk to anyone without telling your parents. You never know who the other person could be!
