Social Media and online platforms.
NSPCC have joined forces with O2 to help parents explore and understand online life as children know it and I had previously shared information about their website. The NSPCC and O2’s Net Aware site and app have now been updated with all-new reviews from parents and young people. It provides online safety information and advice on privacy settings and other features, as well as recommended age guidance and risk ratings for inappropriate content. Net Aware is a tool for parents or anyone working with children, who want to better understand what young people are doing online. Please click https://net-aware.org.uk/.
The UK Safer Internet Centre offers advice for families wanting to set online safety resolutions for the new year. Tips include: have an open and honest conversation; create a family agreement; look at all your accounts; use the internet together.
