Friends Online Report 2017

This is the fifth consecutive year that the Friends Online Report is being published. It shows that every third child in Sweden has been exposed to degrading treatment online during the past year, and every fifth girl in the ages 10-16 years has been subjected to sexual harassment online. This year’s report also looked into whether adults are good role models online and found that half of the respondents have seen adults treat other adults badly online.

E-simulation for parents/guardians

Friends has developed an e-simulation for adults and we would like to share it with the center's international friends. The Swedish support team take calls from parents and other adults every day, who tell us about children around them being subjected to degrading treatment and bullying in school. 

This e-learning course is meant to give adults new perspectives, knowledge and tools. We want to inspire adults to take action and be part of our work to create a safe and equal childhood. In the e-simulation you will take the role as Kim’s parent/guardian. She doesn’t feel safe in school and you will get the opportunity to practice how to support Kim and how to address the school. Let's listen to Kim!
