Online Safety for Parents
Keeping Safe Online
With technology advancing at a rate faster than most of us can cope, and with the added pressure of children nowadays being at the forefront of exposure to this advanced technological age with regard to the internet, mobile phones, laptops, computers and tablet devices, we believe that online safety awareness and safe practice is of paramount importance.
While prevention is sometimes better than the cure as it is so often said, we understand and appreciate the need for children to learn of and embrace these technologies and as a result we equally understand the need to teach them to use it responsibly, ethically, wisely and to guide them on how to best prepare themselves to stay safe while online.
Of course, as with all things in life, the good always seems to be accompanied by the bad, and we therefore feel it is so important to help prepare children by showing them the options available to them if should they experience something they feel uncomfortable with while online in this digital age.
