Online Tips for Parents from Ian Shaw

Following some recent distressing online events, Ian Shaw has some tips for parents regarding safety for children:

  • Engage in your child’s online activities – ask what apps, sites and games they’re using and make sure they’re age appropriate
  • Use parental controls on all devices to help limit what your child is exposed to (Google Family Link is one easy-to-use free app)
  • Help your child report and block any upsetting content they see on social media sites and teach them to “scroll past” anything potentially harmful
  • Let your child know they can come to you about anything upsetting they have seen online
