Starting Conversations about being Online
As a parent or carer, the best tool to support your child in leading a safe and positive life online is open conversation. Having frequent, light hearted conversations will help you better understand what they are doing online and alert you to any concerns early. Keeping conversations relevant to their interests is very help, so join them when they are online so you know their interests - have them teach you the rules to online game, have them show you their favourite videos, join in their text chains.
The pages below show some suggestions on how to start these conversations.
