Parenting in the digital age
Modern technology has many benefits to our children but it has the potential to expose them to dangers unique to the digital world.
With careful consideration and management these risks can be minimised by the use of simple tools to restrict harmful content which your child may encounter. With this in mind we would like to draw your attention to a number of websites that offer clear guidance on how to provide the safest online environment possible. We have a number of parental control guides listed below, but if you are struggling to find a link for your device a more comprehensive list can be found at Internet Matters.
Another useful tool is the Common Sense Media website, where you will find comprehensive reviews for all kinds of media, films, games, books and TV shows. They list all potentially harmful content and also have parents and children’s reviews.
