CYBER SAFETY FOR YOUR KIDS DURING COVID-19
The global impact of COVID-19 means young people will be spending more time at home — and more time online. There are lots of great ways children can use connected devices to learn and play, but there are also risks.
As parents and carers, we have the best opportunity to support and guide our children to avoid online risks and have safer experiences.
We have come across this guide which has been created by Australia's eSafety Commissioner and covers some of the key online safety issues for young people and includes a range of practical tips and advice on what to do if things go wrong. We thought it may be a valuable resource for our clients and their friends and family.
It covers common online safety issues like managing time online, using parent controls and setting and responding to issues like cyber bullying, inappropriate content, sending nudes and contact from strangers.
