Keeping Children Safe Online

Screen addiction guide

Social Media sites are very popular now. However, even though the age restriction is 13+, many parents still allow children younger than this to use the sites.

Be sure that you know what they are up to, and what information, photos or videos they are sharing with others. Check out the NSPCC parent support website for really helpful information. ….because it’s dangerous to assume everything will be ok!

Please look here this helpful guide to keeping your child safe on the internet.

Key points for keeping your child safe on the internet:
Set boundaries in the online world just as you would in the real world. 

Talk to your child about what they are up to online.

Don’t leave them alone! 

Keep up-to-date with your child’s development online.
