Transcript of Internet Safety for Parents
Before buying your child a mobile, find out what functions it has – Internet, private messaging, built in applications
Set parental controls where required
Images taken and uploaded
Security settings need to be set to “Friends only”, that includes - comments, posts and photos
These “Friends” need to be people they know and trust in the real world
Content - Only post content and photos they wouldn't mind showing you!
Try your very best to be “Friends” with your child on Facebook
Learn how to report an issue directly to Facebook

Awareness raising session for
Parents and Carers
I have asked my child to show me sites they use
I have asked my child to set the security settings on all the technologies they use
I have asked my child to only accept people they know and trust in the real world as online “Friends”
I have set safe settings on our computer/laptop and set adult content filters on my child’s smart phone
My child has agreed to tell me if they are worried about something online
Simple steps to protection
How can they help?
Block sites that are not age appropriate
limit inappropriate and illegal material
Set timings – automatic switch off at bedtime
What can you do? - Functions of the site or technologies
Is there any parental information available?
How do you report a problem?
Can the account/profile be made private?
Does it have any parental controls?
New site check list
Ask your child to never accept people they don’t know and trust in the real world
Inform them that giving out personal information can be dangerous. They need to treat personal information such as the school they go to or their location like their tooth brush and not share it with anyone!
Ask them not to webcam with people they do not know from the real world and turn the webcam off after use!
Teach them how to report a problem and delete people that make them feel uncomfortable
Leave all gaming devices in a family space
Open up communication - talk to your child about the sites they are using and why they like them
Explain that people lie online and they are not always who they say they are
Explain that people can be mean online and don’t always have their best interests at heart
Ask them to never give out personal information
Set parental controls
Set time limits on how long they can game for. Allow time for non-technology based activities and allow an hour ‘screen free’ time before bed
Help set up their profile
Add your email as the main contact (if possible)
Set the privacy settings to “friends” only and ensure they are children you know
Show them a CEOP safety resource which outlines the risks (www.youtube.co.uk/ceop/jigsaw)
