Online bullying and e-safety

You don't need to be a technical expert to protect your child on the internet. Below are some very simple steps to get you started.

What should I do if I’m worried about my child’s safety online?

  • Talk to your child about the websites that they use. By understanding and involving yourself in their internet use, you're helping to keep them safe
  • Be positive about the internet and remember that it is a fantastic learning and communication tool
  • Try not to overreact to minor issues. If your child worries that you may take away their internet access, they could become secretive and hide problems from you
  • Keep PCs, laptops and games consoles out of bedrooms wherever possible. Having the laptop in a family room makes it easier for you to monitor your child's internet use, whilst still giving them privacy
  • Set clear ground rules and expectations for your child's online behaviour. If they understand what is and isn't acceptable, it may help them to navigate any problems in the future
