The Danger of Strangers Online

When you think about Stranger Danger are you thinking of a white van outside a school or a man with a dog that has just had puppies?

In 2018 the Danger of Strangers to our children has never been more profound and has never been more removed from the lessons we learnt growing up. There is a complex web of reasons why children subject to online sexual exploitation will not disclose to us. This is as a result of grooming techniques used by pedophiles but more alarmingly is worsened by our current approach both as teachers and parents.

John and John wrote, produced and have been presenting the ‘Walk Online’ roadshow in Southend and Thurrock. To date this has been seen by over 14000 children. Throughout March 2017 we presented an updated version of the Roadshow for the Thurrock Safeguarding Children's Board which was seen by all year 5, 10 and 11 students in the District.

Over the past 3 years John and John have been key speakers at numerous major events including the Essex Headteachers conference, Essex Deputy Headteachers conference, the Essex Safeguarding Children's Board conference and the Rape Crisis conference.

To find out about the different events we offer please see the Events & Training area on this website. The aim of the events is to change your perspective of what our children's lives look like online and to make you challenge many of your current thought processes when trying to keep children safe from todays hidden harms. As you may be aware ‘The 2 Johns’ are well known for delivering bespoke training sessions within schools and other organisations that cover all areas of Child Sexual Exploitation. 

At the end of events we believe you will have a much greater understanding of what children are doing online and will have a much better chance of keeping them safe. We will be covering many new and emerging apps that have appeared over the last year.

The 2 Johns are very proud that following a recent inspection of Thurrock LSCB by OFSTED they singled out their Walk Online Roadshow as an example of outstanding practice, their positive words have given them even further motivation to take the Roadshow out to a wider audience.

So far the roadshow has been seen by over 80000 children over the past year taking in Basildon, Thurrock, Maldon, Saffron Walden, Braintree and Brentwood along with many individual schools.

Wow what a great insight to the world we live in! Opened my eyes and I thought I was internet savvy! These guys are brilliant, to the point and honest, nothing sugar coated! (For us parents anyway). Highly recommended these guys.

Fantastic workshop, with a huge impact. Finally some "real" and relevant information, that will help us keep our children that little bit safer when playing certain games and using certain apps. It is shocking to learn about the actual danger out there - forget 'stranger danger'! Very impressed with parenting tips, which made me think twice about how to approach online safety, to ensure our children will actually tell us when things are 'not right'. Thank you!!!!

I always thought I was quite app savvy and that the restrictions I put in place were enough to keep my daughter safe online. This course changed my mind. It was informative, scary in places and a real eye opener. I urge all parents with children of all ages to take part in this if you have the opportunity.

Really pleased I attending the meeting provided. I was frightened about what I was going to hear and how I would deal with it, however, my perception has been completely changed and I have come away with information and tools to help me keep my children safer when playing games/using apps. Thank you!!
