E-safety at Home
Children can access information online from the laptop, their mobile phone to more hidden methods such as through game sharing on the X-Box or Wii. It is important that you understand how you can do a few simple things to help protect your children using new technology.
The internet and social media sites can be great fun if used in the correct way. They can also be very dangerous if used in a careless and unsupervised way.
