As parents you can help by:

  • having open discussions about your expectations and how to stay safe online
  • closely monitoring the sites your children are accessing
  • limiting the amount of time you allow your child to spend online or using gaming devices
  • discouraging the use of social network sites such as Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat - however, if your child does use social media remind them to only communicate with friends and family (people they know and trust in the real world), and also to ensure that their privacy settings are set high and to make them aware of how to report an incident if they feel uncomfortable.
  • ensuring they do not give out any personal details to people they meet online including on games consoles such as Xbox and PS3.
  • take notice of PEGI ratings – age rating is there for a reason and could mean that your child is being exposed to inappropriate materials if you do not abide by them.
  • check your child's devices daily to see what they have accessed and who they have connected with
