Children find internet communication and social networking fun and safe most of the time but things can go wrong. As a parent or carer, you can help protect your child by being aware of their internet use and which devices they are using for this and talking together about online relationships.

We believe all parents, carers, teachers and trusted adults should be empowered with all the information needed to have well informed, age-appropriate conversations about online safety with children. That's why, every Wednesday, we share a practical, easy to follow guide surrounding key areas or online risks we think you need to be aware of.
