Keeping ahead of our children in the realm of the internet and e-Safety can be quite a challenge. Our e-safety training course for parents aims to assist in this, giving knowledge to parents so that they can feel more able to understand the risks and safeguard their children.
An article in the Telegraph, by Richard Follett (Headmaster and CEOP Ambassador), ‘Internet safety: it’s time to learn what your children know’ discusses the issues facing parents when trying to protect their children in the online world. How it’s not possible to filter out all the “bad stuff” and how open discussion and education of parents and young people is key.
Perhaps its true to say that parents need to know MORE about e-Safety than their children, so that they can guide and educate them and feel confident that their children do know how to keep themselves safe.
