Your child will probably love using the internet. It can be great fun and a fantastic way to learn new and exciting things.
It can also be quite a dangerous place for your child if they are not suitably monitored. It is important that children are kept well informed about any possible dangers and that their use of the internet is monitored by their parents or carers.
The government has recently launched a new website to support parents about e-safety. The website has been developed with ParentZone and CEOP. Parent Info is a collection of articles, tips, expert advice and resources designed to help parents keep up with what their children are doing on-line.
We have also provided some links to various websites that will help you keep your child safe on the internet. We hope you find them useful.
This site provides guidance to parents on social networking sites, apps and games which children use and how to keep their children safe in today’s digital world.
Childnet International has produced guidance for parents and carers on looking after the digital wellbeing of children and young people. The guidance includes having an awareness of how being online can make children and young people feel, and how they can look after themselves and others when online. The guidance includes: age specific information for 3-7 year olds, 7-11 year olds, 11-14 year olds and 14-18 year olds, about how children and young people are interacting with the internet; top tips to support young people at this age; and ideas to help start a conversation about digital wellbeing.
