Internet safety isn‘t about preventing our children using the Internet; it’s about giving them the educational tools to explore safely.
This site is undergoing maintenance.
These internet safety tools can only be taught to our children through good education and parenting, but it’s the latter where we sometimes struggle. After all, many of us parents didn’t grow up in a world of connected technology, so we sometimes form the impression that children know more than we do.
Whilst that may be true to a degree, knowing how to use something and knowing how to use something properly (and appropriately) are two very different things, and this is where children can be exposed to risk.
The purpose of this site isn’t to go deep into any of the areas, but simply to signpost you to the best, most up-to-date guidance.
