Research on #NetAware shows that 48% of children and young people who reviewed the social network, thought that it can be risky. One of the key risks they identified was that they could come across disturbing or upsetting videos. So...

We've seen lots of people talking about #ThreeGirls on BBC One. Especially about young girls not understanding that what's happening is abuse. When a young person like Ruby in #ThreeGirls has been groomed, it can be hard for them to understand that what's happened is wrong. This type of abuse - child sexual exploitation - is often misunderstood. As this video shows, young people often trust...

Did you know the suicide rate for boys is more than double that for girls? And yet figures from Childline show that boys are six times less likely than girls to talk to our counsellors about siucidal thoughts and feelings. This may be because boys feel more pressure to appear strong and in control. As part of #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek, we want to break the stigma associated with mental health...

It can be diffcult to tell if a child is suffering as they may keep it to themselves. Sudden changes in thoughts and behaviours may be a sign that a child is suffering from mental illness. We've got more info on the signs and symptoms to look out for...
