The internet is an extraordinary force for good but is not designed with children in mind. However one third of users are under 18 and the part it plays in children's lives continues to grow: among 3-4 year olds, in the last year, time online increased from 6 hours 48 minutes to 8 hours 18 minutes a week, and 12-15 year olds now spend over 20 hours a week online. (Figures taken from the Children's Commissioner - Growing Up Digital January 2017 report)
