Keeping safe online is as important for adults as it is for children and young people. But knowing what to trust and what to be cautious of isn't always easy. For Safer Internet Day 2020 we'd like to share some resources about keeping safe online that are suitable for all ages.
Childnet International is a great resource for parents who are looking for advice on topics such as screen time, social media, and cyber bullying among many other topics. This website also has advice specific to certain age ranges. If you've got a child in primary school we recommend this interactive page about what to do in certain situations;
The UK Safer Internet Centre is another website offering advice about cyber security. We especially like their blog posts, here's a link to all posts with the tag "parents".
Lastly, we'd like to recommend the Report Harmful Content website for if you or someone you care for has ever been in a situation where harmful content is present, this includes impersonation, threats, or other abuse and inappropriate content.
