INTERNET SAFETY

Internet : Guidance For Parents

  • Stay in touch with what your children are doing by spending time with them whilst they are on-line, i.e. make on-line time a family activity; make sure that you know the services your child uses.
  • Find out what types of information and services are offered and whether there are ways for parents to protect their child.
  • Keep the computer in a family room rather than a child’s bedroom.
  • Learn yourself about how to access the services – ask your child to explain the services to you;go on-line yourself so that you are familiar with and understand the potential benefits and risks associated with Internet access.
  • If you don’t know how to log on, get your child to show you.
  • Seek out the advice and counsel of other local Internet users and become familiar with the appropriate systems;
  • Get to know your child’s ‘on-line friends’ just as you do their other friends.
  • If you are concerned about your child’s on-line activities, talk to him/her about it;
  • Develop an agreed set of ‘Family Internet Rules’
