The UK is the first country in the world to introduce mandatory Internet security lessons for kids. 

The concept matches that from the 70s with the "Stop, look, listen" mantra of road safety. Only this time it will be more like "Zip it, block it, flag it".

According to the British government, 99 percent of kids in the UK have access to the Internet, and nearly a third of them say their parents do not follow their web activities and how they use the Internet.
