The mother of a young boy who was sexually abused after being groomed on his games console has spoken out as part of the ‘Keep Switched On’ campaign. The initiative has been launched by the ‘It’s Not Okay’ partnership to raise awareness of the risks of online grooming.

The mum, who is remaining anonymous to protect the identity of her son, is urging parents and carers to be vigilant of their children’s safety at all times, even when they are deemed to be ‘safe’ in their bedrooms.

She said:

“I would urge parents not to dismiss any radical changes in behaviour - you know your children, you must trust your instincts. Keep conversations about what they are doing, and who they are seeing, ongoing.
