Parental Guide to Online Safety
Below are four simple steps you can follow to talk to your child about online safety :
1. Talk to your child regularly about what they’re doing online and how to stay safe. Let them know they can come to you or another trusted adult if they’re feeling worried or upset by anything they have seen.
2. Explore your child’s online activities together. Understand why they like playing certain games and make sure they know what they can do to keep themselves safe.
3. Agree your own rules as a family when using sites, apps and games.
4. Manage your technology and use the settings available to keep your child safe.
