ICT Safety and Support

Staying safe online

Explore sites and apps together. See below for websites that review content of popular apps and games

Ask about things that they might see online which make them feel uncomfortable. Ask them about things that they or their friends have seen online.

Talk about how they can stay safe on social networks. Ask them to show you were they manage their privacy settings and where reporting functions are

Reassure them that you will not overreact – you are just looking out for them. And stick to this – sometimes you may need to walk away first, before addressing what your child has shown you
