Keeping your child safe online

The internet is an amazing resource which enables children and young people to connect, communicate and be creative in a number of different ways, on a range of devices. However, the internet is always changing, and being able to keep up to date with your children’s use of technology can be a challenge.

You may sometimes feel that your children have better technical skills than you do, however children and young people still need advice and protection when it comes to managing their lives online.

You don’t need to be an expert on the internet to help keep your child stay safe online. There is a lot of advice available from many sources but we recommend the UK Safer Internet Centre and NSPCC websites.
