The BBC has created a "wellbeing" smartphone app called Own It aimed at children.
It monitors how young people interact with friends and family online and through messaging apps.
It uses AI to evaluate a child's mood so it can offer advice or encourage them to talk to trusted adults.
As we know, the digital world is a fantastic place for children to learn and share, but many struggle to find a healthy online balance, especially when they get their first phones.
The app acts as a "helping hand" to guide children into developing good habits when using their first phone and avoid some of the potential pitfalls of digital life. It is designed to offer help and support for children, especially if they are about to share sensitive data or send, or receive, an upsetting message.
Own It is built around a special software keyboard that pops up when kids type messages and monitors the tone of the words being typed and language used. The app also has its own content that aims to help children manage the amount of time they spend looking at their screen and passes on other advice about responsible online interaction.
We strongly encourage parents to download this app to their child's phone to help keep them safe on-line.

Last week, pupils from Class 3 took part in an informative workshop, presented by and Albert - a local business from Chester who actively support craftspeople within their village communities, particularly in West Africa and Asia. During the workshop, we looked at four different countries where interesting and usual items are made, by hand, in a very delicate process. We had the opportunity to experiment with some of the traditional instruments which have been made and we looked closely at the craftsmanship and detail that has gone into these beautiful items.
After our fantastic workshop, the whole school attended a special assembly, which was presented by and Albert.
We now have a selection of small gifts and musical instruments for purchase in Class 3. All of the purchases in aid of this brilliant cause will enable and Albert to continue the good work that they are doing - visiting schools to deliver workshops on buying Fairtrade and raising awareness of the process and the hard work that goes into the crafting of some of these products.
Over the next week, Miss Porter will have the items in her classroom for sale. If you child would like to have a look at the items or make any purchases, this can be done at lunchtimes or at the end of the day. It is recommended that children wanting to purchase an item bring no more than £5 with them.
