Internet Safety for Kids
(scroll this section to read all)



Internet Safety is about keeping your child safe from the extra hazards from access to the internet via laptops, tablets, smartphones etc.

Online dangers include:

  • Cyber-bullying
  • Viewing disturbing or inappropriate content
  • Chatting to strangers online and being tempted to meet them
  • Giving away private information
  • Making or sending indecent or illegal images or video
  • Getting a bad online reputation
  • Spending too much of your life online
  • Getting viruses on your computer or having it hacked

What You Can Do

  • Compromise with your parents about time spent online and what you get up to
  • Get your parents' permission before downloading software.
  • Do NOT give away personal information (full name, home address, age, phone number, your school) and don't post pictures of yourself
  • If you ever feel uncomfortable when on the internet, tell an adult e.g. if someone starts being mean or if you see bad content or someone tries to meet up
  • Never agree to meet up or even discuss meeting up with anyone. Sometimes older people pretend to be young children online so they can meet up with you. Or they admit to being older but pretend to be very friendly. This is VERY dangerous.
  • Don't be mean to anyone online
  • Don't use your parents' credit card
  • Don't try to spend too much time online. Moderation is the key
