E-safety top tip!

How often do you talk to your child about online safety?

Evidence shows that parents talking to their children about safety and respect online is one of the best ways to keep them safe on and offline; young people are more receptive to being empowered themselves than by being forced to do something by their parents or carers.

Here are some conversation starters you could ask your child this weekend:

  • If you feel uncomfortable about anything on social media, where do you go for help?
  • If anybody sends you hurtful messages on the internet or on your mobile phone, who do you tell?
  • What are the school rules for using the internet?
  • What are the risks of posting inappropriate content on the internet?
