With the current situation, we are all spending alot more time on our computers, tablets and phones. It is so important that we take the time to remind the children of what they need to be to stay safe while online. Why not start by creating a'Family Agreement' (Link below) to help to create a positive discussion about staying safe online. If you work throuh it together with your child, they will feel more invovled and you may find you learn alot about thier online habits. Also included below are several documents and links to a number or resources and games for the children to continue to reinforce the message of online safety.
If possible, you should also take a few minutes and read through some of the leaflets (links below). These will help give you an idea of the importance internet safety and they will also help you to talk about being safer online use with your child.
Another serious issue that children face while online is that of 'fake news'. During the current pandemic, children are going to be hearing and reading all kinds ofinformation about Covid-19. It is so important that they are able to seperate fact from fiction. The PowerPoint below asks some great questions and will be educational for everyone in the entire family. Working through this together would be an excellent exercise and please take the time to have conversations around the slides as well.
