Keeping your child safe online

To help keep your child safe online:

  • Talk to your child about the dangers posed by the internet
  • Tell them what they should do if they become worried or concerned
  • Explain that anything shared online or by mobile phone could end up being seen by anyone
  • Understand what your child does online and know which websites they visit
  • Put the computer where the whole family can see it, not out of sight in a bedroom
  • Use filtering software to block inappropriate sites
  • Encourage your child to use websites such as ChildLine where they can find advice and guidance on safe (but fun) use of the internet
