The Internet can be a wonderful resource for children and young people but it is important to be aware of what they may see, hear or share about themselves online

 

They can use it to research school homework, communicate with teachers and their friends, and play interactive games. Children who are old enough to punch in a few letters on the keyboard can literally access the world.

 

Just like any safety issue, it's wise to talk with children and young people about your concerns, take advantage of resources to protect them, and keep a close eye on their activities.

Parents and Carers

The Internet is a vital and wonderful resource that can encourage young and old in exploring, learning, interacting, creating and contributing.

 

Many parents however, feel left behind as their children know more about the Internet than they do.

 

Parents do however have an important role to play in their children's Internet use.

Whilst you may not be technologically savvy, you have wisdom about the world, which is invaluable. This real world wisdom can be used to guide your children when they use the Internet.
