E-Safety Tips for Parents

Checklist for children between 6 - 10 years (

Agree Boundaries

Be clear about what your child can and cannot do online. Where can they use the internet? How long for? Agree which websites they can use. 

Stay involved

Encourage them to use their tech devices in a communal area, so you can keep an eye on how they are using the internet and share in their enjoyment.

Explore together

The best way to find out what your  child is doing on the internet is to ask them. Talk to them about being a good friend on the internet too.

Talk to siblings

It is also a good idea to talk to older children about what they are doing online and what they show to their younger siblings. Encourage them to be responsible.

Put yourself in control

Install parental controls on your home broadband and any internet-enabled devices. Set up a user account for your child on the main device they use and make sure other accounts in the household are password-protected so your child can't access them by mistake.

Search safely

Use safe search engines such as swiggle or kidsearch. You can also activate safe search settings on google and youtube.

Use airplane mode

Use airplane mode on your devices when your child is using them so they can't make any unapproved purchases or interact with anyone online without your knowledge.

Check if its suitable

The age rating that come with games, apps, films and social networks are a good guide as to whether they are suitable for your child.
