How to support your child's online use

How to support your child's online use

Parents/carers play a vital role in supporting children in learning about how to stay safe online, and they are one of the first people children might turn to if things go wrong. UK Safer Internet Centre know it is difficult to stay on top of the wide range of sites and devices that children access and use, so they hope that the following advice helps.

Four Steps:

  1. Have open and ongoing conversations with your children about staying safe online
  2. Use safety tools on social networks and other online services, eg Facebook privacy settings
  3. Decide if you want to use parental controls on your home internet
  4. Understand the devices in your home and the parental control tools they offer in the UK Safer Internet Centre Parents’ Guide to Technology
