The internet is amazing. Children can play, learn, create and connect - opening up a whole world of exciting possibilities. But with the digital world changing all the time, how can you make sure your child’s staying safe?
It can be hard to keep track of what your child is doing on social networks, apps and games. Or know how to keep them safe.
Talk about their online world
We talk to children about crossing the road, bullying and speaking to strangers. But what about staying safe in the digital world?
Having regular conversations about what your child is doing online - just like you would their day at school - is the best way to keep them safe.
You'll be able to spot any problems, encourage them to come to you if they’re worried and make sure they know what’s ok to share online - and what’s not.
