How can we protect children using computers, ipads netbooks and the internet?

 

The internet has changed all of our lives, particularly our children’s. For parents and carers this opens up a whole new world of things to be aware of. For many of us, this can all be a bit too much.

 


You might be struggling to keep up with the things your child is doing online, you might wonder whether what they are doing is safe, and you might also be thinking how can I be as good a parent online as I am offline?

 

As a parent/carer it’s really important to familiarise yourself with social networking services. Most sites stipulate a minimum user age of 13, although some interactive sites are designed specifically for younger children.

 

BY UNDERSTANDING THESE SITES YOU CAN HELP TO SUPPORT YOUR CHILDREN IN CHOOSING AN APPROPRIATE SITE AND USING IT IN A SAFE AND CONSTRUCTIVE WAY.
