Keeping Children Safe On-line

The Internet has become an integral part of our and our children’s lives. A world has opened up which offers many positive opportunities. According to Ofcom, (2013) the majority of parents agree with the statement: “I trust my child to use the Internet safely” (83%). However, only 43% of 8-11 year olds are very confident in knowing how to stay safe online. It is therefore important that parents and carers are aware of the way in which their children use the Internet; talk to them about the risk of going online and assist them to use the Internet safely and responsibly.
