Understand online safety issues and how to manage risks?
Parents and carers play a VITAL role in developing safe and responsible online behaviours,
and school and children’s services should work with them to raise awareness of online safety issues and risks.
Through this approach, parents and carers can help to reinforce the online safety messages delivered elsewhere, and encourage positive behaviour wherever, and whenever, their children go online. The BIG QUESTIONS are, as a parent:
Do you know what your child is doing ONLINE?
Do you know what WEBSITES your child accesses?
Do you know what games your child is playing online or who they might be communicating with?
The rapid change and advances in technology mean we have to be vigilant with regards how children are using technology. For instance, if your child has a mobile phone or access to a mobile phone, do you really know what it is being used for (social media, games, etc), are older siblings or family members playing games that are not age appropriate for your younger siblings? The following sites aim to help parents with up-to-date information about all areas of online safety.
