1. Use this as an opportunity to talk to your child about their use of the internet
With children and parents spending more time at home, now is a great time to continue to chat with your child about how they are using online technology and what it means to them. Their use of apps and games may have changed since the outbreak, so now is a good time to check in!
2. Explore Thinkuknow resources using the #OnlineSafetyAtHome activity packs
Every fortnight Thinkuknow will release a new set of #OnlineSafetyAtHome activity packs to share with children between the ages of 3 and 16. Use these to help you keep up a positive, supportive conversation about safety online in your home
3. Tell your children to report anything that worries them
It’s important that children and young people always know where to go if they come across something that worries them or makes them feel uncomfortable online. Remind them regularly that you’re there to help.
4. Use parental controls
Setting parental controls can be a quick and effective tool to help protect your children online, and should be installed on all devices that children use.
Remember if something has happened online that to your child that has made them feel unsafe, scared or worried, you can report directly to CEOP following the link below. If you are worried that a child is in immediate danger, please call 999.
