The best way to protect your children online is to be informed yourself and make it part of your day to day life. We spend years training our children to cross the road and stay away from strangers in the outside world in all the daily little messages we give them before we ever let them out there on their own. Training them to be safe online should be an equal part of these safety messages, after all they can be out in the ‘world wide web’ from a very young age, unsupervised at times. Use the websites below to help you find the best ways to talk to your children about keeping safe online.
