We tell our children to share but online it’s different. In fact, sometimes sharing online can be dangerous. That’s why we’re asking parents to be Share Aware and keep children safe online.
Below we have offered two links to websites created by the NSPCC with advice on helping your child to stay safe on social networks, apps and games.
Are you worried about online sexual abuse or the way someone has been communicating with your child online? Are you concerned about online grooming or sexual behaviour online? If the answer is YES, Make a report to one of CEOP’s Child Protection Advisors. For more information regarding online safety, visit the CEOPS website. please click on the image below.
It can be daunting to feel you have no life experience to fall back on, because your child explores online spaces you could have never imagined at their age. But the good news is you already have a lot of what you need to be a parent in the digital world. You can afford to be confident. Confident in your parenting skills and confident in your instincts. Because when it comes to your child and technology, it’s still just that – parenting. It’s not always easy – but Parent Zone has tools and resources that can help.

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?
The ThinkuKnow website is really helpful and aims to make online parenting simple and offers many practical tips and simple guidance.
NSPCC’s Net Aware provides guidance to parents on social networking sites, apps and games which children use and how to keep their children safe in today’s digital world. It can be accessed via https://www.net-aware.org.uk/. Given that many such new sites constantly appear, this website can be quite useful to stay up to date and keep children safe.
