Interactive chat, IM, Music, Games, Blog

Did you know…

28% of parents who use the internet describe themselves as beginners compared with only 7% of children

Different usage



Supervised, filtered & monitored

Supervision is more difficult


Internet Use

The web



It’s a changing environment

Many children pick up technology quicker!


Understanding how to behave in a virtual world

Did you know…

74% of young people say that they don’t needtheir parents restricting or monitoring their internet usage !

Knowledge and wisdom are different


Children want to be plugged in 24 hours a day if left to themselves

Instant information these days – we want it quick – issue however of what is reliable

We need to empower children to be able to look after themselves online – not just a ‘blocking and banning approach’

Instant communication – use of Skype/ Facetime

Technology is neutral – it’s how people choose to use it



Unwanted contact/grooming – bribery/flattery/sexualised games/threats/blackmail

Harmful content/materials


Privacy/digital footprints

‘De-sensitisation’ to images


Talk to your child about what they’re up to online. Be a part of their online life; involve the whole family and show an interest. Find out what sites they visit and what they love about them, if they know you understand they are more likely to come to you if they have any problems.

Watch Thinkuknow films and cartoons with your child. The Thinkuknow site has films, games and advice for children from five all the way to 16.

Encourage your child to go online and explore! There is a wealth of age-appropriate sites online for your children. Encourage them to use sites which are fun, educational and that will help them to develop online skills.

Keep up-to-date with your child’s development online. Children grow up fast and they will be growing in confidence and learning new skills daily. It’s important that as your child learns more, so do you.

Set boundaries in the online world just as you would in the real world. Think about what they might see, what they share, who they talk to and how long they spend online. It is important to discuss boundaries at a young age to develop the tools and skills children need to enjoy their time online.

Keep all equipment that connects to the internet in a family space. For children of this age, it is important to keep internet use in family areas so you can see the sites your child is using and be there for them if they stumble across something they don’t want to see.

Know what connects to the internet and how. Nowadays even the TV connects to the internet. Make sure you’re aware of which devices that your child uses connect to the internet, such as their phone or games console. Also, find out how they are accessing the internet – is it your connection, or a neighbour’s wifi? This will affect whether the safety setting you set are being applied.

Use parental controls on devices that link to the internet, such as the TV, laptops, computers, games consoles and mobile phones. Parental controls are not just about locking and blocking, they are a tool to help you set appropriate boundaries as your child grows and develops. They are not the answer to your child’s online safety, but they are a good start and they are not as difficult to install as you might think. Service providers are working hard to make them simple, effective and user friendly.

A Quick Lingo Test…



  • Age, Sex, Picture, Location.

- in my opinion

  • LOL
  • KPC
  • Laugh Out Loud.
  • Keeping Parents Clueless.
  • POS
  • Parent over shoulder

What can I do?

  • Talk to your child about what to do if they do come across somethingunpleasant and Teach them to be critical
  • Use child-friendly search engines or set a search filter

 Use browser tools - Favourites, Bookmarking & History

  • Install filtering but don’t rely on it
  • Get involved with your children online, don’t overreact and make sureyour kids know they can talk to you if they feel uncomfortable
  • Encourage balanced use (watch for signs of excessive use)
  • Talk about the consequences of giving out personal info
