Canon-Slade Students said….

  • Do you have a mobile phone?

Number of hours online?

What do you do online?

Do you have a Facebook account

Have you seen content your parents would not approve of?

“Cats in clothes”

“Old men speaking to me”

Do you have friends online who you have never met?

Would you mind if your parents restricted your technology use to keep you safe?


What are the risks?


  • Cyberbullying is bullying that takes place via technology.

Online Gaming

Social Networks

What to do if your child is being Cyberbullied?

  • Offer reassurance and support

  • Keep evidence

  • Block the bullies

  • Report any bullying to the website it is hosted on as

    well as CEOP


  • Process used by people with a sexual interest in children to attempt to engage them in sexual acts either over the internet or in person.

  • Social networking sites, chat rooms and online games are the main target, that person they don’t know could be pretending to be someone else.

Matt Though He Knew…

Inappropriate Content

  • Internet is open to anyone to post and create content.

What can parents do?

Parenting online

Remember parenting online is no different from parenting

Simple advice

Talk to your child

Socialising online

  • What a friend means to them may be different to what a friend means to you.

Socialising online

  • Check privacy settings and talk to your child about what they want to share with who?

  • On most sites you can decide what you want to share and with who you want to share it.

Socialising online



Socialising online

  • The conversation about the dangers of people online is a critical one to have.

  • As they get older they may want to meet someone they have met online.

  • This can of course be dangerous – talk to them about the fact that people may not be who they say they are.

  • If they really want to meet someone they should take a trusted adult, like you, with them.

Socialising online

  • Until you feel they are old enough to be responsible about who they share things with online, you should consider restricting content and the sites they visit.

Socialising online

Report inappropriate content

Sharing content online

  • Much content online is created by sharing

  • It’s not always bad

  • Once it’s there it stays there

  • Talk to children about sharing photos, videos, and personal information

  • With cameras on every phone it is easy to make a mistake with a simple click of a button

Sharing content online

  • Get them to think about who they would be happy sharing content with in real life

  • Remind your child to think before they share

  • Make sure they knowwho to talk toif they feel uncomfortable

  • Talk about the consequences of giving outpersonal info or making information public

  • Keep thecomputer in a family room

  • Agree rulesas a family – meeting up

Advice for young people

  • People may not be who they say they are

  • Not all people tell the truth

  • If you’re told not to tell an adult, tell an adult straight away!

  • If you feel uncomfortable about anything leave the chat room and tell an adult

  • If you're asked for a screen name to use in a chat room use a nickname instead of your real name. Avoid nicknames that sound ‘sexy’

  • If you’re asked where you live, only say which town

  • If someone keeps asking for more information, don’t give it and tell an adult

Good advice for young people

  • Only show pictures that you’d be happy for your parents to see

  • Only send pictures to someone you know

  • Pictures you see aren’t always the person you think they are

  • Remember that your friends may post pictures of you and you may post pictures of them – TALK TO THEM about which pictures are ok BEFORE you post them

  • Anything posted on the internet will be there for ever and is no longer in your control.

Good advice for young people

  • Only enter non-sensitive information about yourself.

  • Check the settings:

    • Make sure you’re not sharing your profile with all other people – family and friends only

  • Be wary:

    • about the pictures and files you post or allow access to

    • of people you have not met in real life

    • of contacts of contacts (or friends of friends)

    • Having hundreds of ‘friends’ does not mean you are popular – it means you are being foolish

Good advice for young people

Like any other bullying

  • Don’t keep it to yourself

  • You are not alone!

  • Tell an adult you know and trust. They can help you combat the bullying.

  • If you wouldn’t do it in real life, don’t do it online!

Remember …

We are all inquisitive beings, children more than most.

They are more likely to try things out of curiosity, or that they don’t understand.

Use the booklets provided to access the websites to help your child understand, in more detail, how to protect themselves when using technology.
