Parents who are finding that their children know far more about the internet and its strange codes and languages than they do, can rest easier, for help is at hand.
Whether on a computer at school, a laptop at home, a games console or mobile phone, children and young people are increasingly accessing the internet whenever they can and wherever they are.
As you would protect your child in the real world, you will want to make sure that they are safe whatever they are doing. Like learning to cross the road, online skills are for life. If your child understands the risks and can make sensible and informed choices online, they can get the most from the internet and stay safe whilst doing so.
