E-Safety for Parents / Carers
We sometimes get requests from parents & carers about how they can keep their children safe on-line. One of the most effective ways is by using 'parental settings', which can be used to block inappropriate content, etc. The website www.internetmatters.org has developed an interactive guide to help parents use parental settings on a wide range of devices... why not have a look and see it would be helpful to you.
|National Online Safety have created a FREE guide ‘Screen Addiction’ – an issue which is affecting young people across the globe.|
The guide informs parents about the issues associated with smartphone and screen addiction amongst children and how they can help to control the associated risks and stop their children becoming ‘Screen Zombies’.
