Parents’ Guide to Internet Safety for Children and Young People
June 11, 2020
This guide features what children and young people do online, the threat of online strangers, and how to ensure a healthy balance between Internet use and your children’s online privacy and digital security, as well as other aspects of online safety.
As part of your responsibility as a parent you should:
- Talk to them extensively about social media and content consumption, and be prepared to step in whenever issues do come up.
- Be an active listener, educate them about the dangers of specific content, and make sure they understand that their actions online can have consequences.
- Take some time to understand the websites and services your children use the most as well. Teaching them how to engage with others online is integral to succeeding in an increasingly Internet-centred society.
