Help for keeping your child safe online

Keeping your child safe online - key points

 

  • Set boundaries in the online world just as you would in the real world.
  • Talk to your child about what they are up to online. Don’t leave them alone!
  • Keep up-to-date with your child’s development online. How are they communicating with others online?
  • Keep all equipment that connects to the internet in a family space.
  • Know what connects to the internet and how.
  • Use parental controls on devices that link to the internet, such as the TV, laptops, computers, games consoles and mobile phones.
  • Lock down sites so that the information is not public.
  • Obey age restrictions, particularly on social media sites.
