Parent and Carers Online Safety Training
Many parents use technology widely today but, despite understanding its uses and risks, still worry about what their children do online. Most children will manage their online lives well and build their own coping mechanisms just as they do with real life threats, however, they do often use technology and services in different ways to adults – which is where insecurity and worries can form.
This session provides parents with a window into the current popular technologies and how young people utilise them. Demonstrating the massive positives and potential pitfalls, the interactive presentation provides parents with advice, strategies and resources to help them understand and engage with their child’s online lives in a healthy, positive, and productive way.

Children & Young People
It might seem too soon to start online safety training, but did you know that 52% of 3-4 year olds go online for an average of 9 hours a week? They’re rushing ahead of us and are an especially-high-risk group. We cannot ignore the need for education and awareness in early years – even if it does seem to be at such a young age. It really is never too early to address online safety for children.
