Does your child use:

  1. a mobile phone
  2. the Internet
  3. a social networking site such as Facebook, YouTube, Bebo or Twitter
  4. MSN, Skype, or other instant messages

If the answer is yes, then your child is potentially at risk.

As parents and carers, our natural desire is to keep our children safe. From learning to cross the road, ride a bike or swim, parents have to teach, guide and support their children - the online world is no different. The best ways to defend against online risks are openness, awareness and education. Talk to your children about their online lives, share their experiences and learn from them, help them to use technology positively and responsibly and give them boundaries, guidance and support.

To help adults keep up with the fast pace of the ever changing world of technology, Warwickshire ICT Development Service are offering guidance, giving e-Safety advice for parents and carers.
