Protecting your Child on the Internet Advice

The vpnMentor website has a very useful blog found here with lots of information about ‘Protecting your Child on the Internet’. It covers:

  1. Mobile phones and apps
  2. Streaming content and smart TVs
  3. Gaming consoles and online games
  4. Social media
  5. Cyberbullying
  6. Privacy and information security
  7. Viewing inappropriate content online
  8. Online predators

This means you can dip in and out of it easily depending on the nature of your concern or the advice you want at the time.

Covid-19 Impact
 
We know our children will be spending more time playing online games during this time and that this can provide much needed interaction with their friends.
Online safety is more important than ever and talking about acceptable behaviour online is a good way to ensure our children know the rules. Monitoring communication regularly, especially messages, helps to keep our children safe.
Online games can be a really positive and fun way for children to interact, as the link below explains.
