Some tips to stay safe online:


  • Keep the computer in a room where the whole family can use it.
  • Discuss and set reasonable rules and guidelines for computer use with your children and keep them near the computer as a reminder.
  • Explain to your children that they should NEVER give out personal details (name, address, passwords or email address) or photographs unless you agree to this first.
  • Learn as much as you can about the internet and the services it provides. Try to use and understand the sites your children use and get to know their online friends as you would their other friends.
  • If you children receives emails, attachments or downloaded files from people or organisations they or you don't know or trust, get them to delete them straight away. They may contain viruses or nasty messages.
