Most children have access to the internet and it can be difficult to monitor what they’re seeing online and make sure that they don’t see anything that is inapproriate.

It is important for you as parents/carers to talk to your child/children about how to avoid unacceptable or age inappropriate content.

Encourage them to speak to you or another trusted adult without the fear of getting into trouble.

Find out what your child likes to do online before doing some research on their favourite websites and apps.

Below are some useful resources for you to refer to:
