Children’s Internet safety charity, Childnet, has some simple advice for parents to help them talk to their children about playing safely online.
- The Internet is a fantastic place full of information and opportunities to learn new things.
Help your children get the most out of their time online by using the internet together. Embrace the technologies that your children enjoy and talk about how to use them in a positive way. Conversation and engagement are key to helping children stay safe online.
- Always tell an adult.
Sometimes we see things online that make us worried or uncomfortable. Other times messages appear on websites or devices and knowing what to do next isn’t always clear.
Remind your children to always tell an adult if they are worried are unsure about anything related to use of the internet or technology.
- Not everything or everyone online is reliable or always telling the truth.
Help your children find reliable information by exploring several websites together to make sure they all give the same information. You can also use books to check facts you find online.
- Explore the tools available on sites and services your family enjoys.
Search engines and other sites/services often have filtering options or parental controls to limit what children can access. Look out for these tools and take the time to learn how they can work best for your family.
