Call You and Yours: Internet Safety

Winifred Robinson is broadcasting live from the Baltic Centre in Gateshead for Safer Internet Day.

How much do we know about our children's online lives? Just under half of all teenagers have smartphones according to OFCOM. So how do we manage what they look at? The NSPCC has warned abuse via the internet and mobile phones is one of the biggest child protections issues facing children today. So how do we protect them? As part of the BBC's coverage of Safer Internet Day we'll be joined by a panel of experts, a live studio audience and children from schools in the North East. We'll hear stories of children affected, what charities are doing to help and who is taking responsibility.

You can call with your questions for the panel on 03700 100444
