In our last blog we highlighted fake news and how to help children separate it from real news.
This time we are helping parents and carers to discuss wider internet safety with their children by signposting some fantastic resources and tools.
Thinkuknow is an education programme from the National Crime Agency and is releasing fortnightly activity packs to download. These 15 minute activities build children's knowledge, critical thinking and resilience and target all ages: 4-5 year olds, 5-7, 8-10, 11-13 and 14+.
With an increase in children using video chat software, Parent Zone have released parent guides for both primary and secondary age children. The conversations, considerations, information on specific apps and more, contained in these guides help your child to make the most of this technology.
With greater amounts of children using devices, apps and games - parental controls are more valuable than ever.
Internet Matters provides simple step-by-step guides for putting controls on devices, broadband networks and gaming consoles.
We hope that you find these resources useful, give you the means to start engaging conversations with your children and that the whole family feel safe and enjoy exciting online possibilities.
