Just 13% of parents in the North West say that they have spoken to their children about how to report concerns online
Commenting on her involvement, Beth said:
"It's really important young people feel safe and empowered online and know how to report anything that upsets them or to tell an adult. It's also vital that parents feel confident enough to discuss online safety with their children."
Today is the 11th Safer Internet Day with the theme 'Let's create a better internet together'.
