  • Things you can do …….

  • Make sure your child asks you before they go online

  • Limit approved websites and time spent online

  • Set high security settings for browsers, membership and social networking sites (In the case of Facebook they are not legally allowed an account until they are 13)

  • Install and maintain internet security software and parental controls

  • Monitor your child’s computer/mobile phone use and sit with them when they are online wherever possible

  • Talk about protecting private information (name, phone number etc) and never sharing passwords with friends

  • Make sure you know the children’s usernames and passwords to all accounts they have, and that those accounts are set up by you (with a family email account) so you will set privacy settings and know how they work

  • Recommendations……

  • Frequently check your computers internet history to see the sites your children have visited and monitor their email and instant messaging accounts to see who they communicate with. Let your child know you are doing this to ensure that trust is not broken.

  • Set rules about online communication, illegal downloading and cyber-bullying

  • They should know never to click a link in an email or IM, this is a common way people get viruses or reveal private and valuable information to criminals

  • Discuss risks and concerns about posting and sharing private information, videos and photographs

  • Keep computers in a common area in the house

  • Encourage your child to tell you if they feel uncomfortable with anything they see , hear or read online

  • Remember…….

  • Your child may access the internet at a friends house

  • Encourage your child to use the internet responsibly
