NEED ADVICE ON DIGITAL SAFETY?
Helpful, Open, Supportive
Talking to your child about digital safety can seem a daunting task – especially if they have more tech know-how than you! But with our straightforward, straight-talking guide, you’ll be equipped to tackle the conversation with confidence.
Next time your child is online, show an interest in their favorite apps and sites. Take a look through them together. Chat about any potential problems you spot, such as cyberbullying, sharing private info like passwords and phone numbers, and people pretending to be someone else. Ask your child how they’d react in each instance. Show faith in their judgment, but offer advice and guidance where necessary, such as how to report unpleasant behavior. Remind your child that you’re always there to help, if they’re ever unsure. This is also a good time to establish ground rules. Decide a daily time limit for online use - and set an example yourself! Also agree upon app and in-app purchases. Finally, because the internet is ultimately a fun place, end your chat on a positive note by playing an app together.
Remember to only share your personal information with people and sites you trust.
Share your good or bad experiences with friends or someone who can help you.
Treat others with respect and they will treat you the same.
Play, explore and learn new tools and tricks!
