Internet Safety Day
Every year we have a day dedictaed to Internet Safety; however, it is not just one day, internet safety is important everyday.
Have a conversation with children about using the internet safely, responsibly and positively. Whether you are a parent, grandparent, foster carer, aunt, uncle or older sibling – we can all play a role in empowering children to enjoy their time online! UK Safer Internet Centre focuses on how consent works in an online context and exploring how young people ask, give, and receive consent online. This could be in their friendships or relationships, how they take and share images and videos or how they manage their privacy and data. These conversation starters are a great way to help you talk about these issues with children. Click here for more information on conversation starters.

Why not go on a hunt around the house searching for all the devices which connect to the internet? Record them on your family Internet Safety Plan.
