The expanding reach of the internet presents both opportunities and challenges for  children. As internet access proliferates, children are increasingly exposed to online platforms, educational resources, and social networks from a young age. While this offers immense learning potential, it also raises concerns about online safety and privacy. As children engage with digital content, they become targets for various online threats such as cyberbullying, identity theft, and exposure to inappropriate content. Thus, safeguarding children in cyberspace becomes paramount, necessitating robust cybersecurity measures and comprehensive digital literacy programs.  Cyberhygiene awareness is taught in European and South American schools. The Paris Call for Trust and Security in Cyberspace suggests that children learn about cybersecurity as early as age 6.   By instilling responsible online behaviors, we empower children to navigate the digital landscape securely.
