Simple rules for keeping your child safe

To keep your child safe they should:

  • ask permission before using the Internet
  • only use websites you have chosen together or a child friendly search engine
  • only email people they know, (why not consider setting up an address book?)
  • ask permission before opening an email sent by someone they don’t know
  • not use Internet chat rooms
  • not use their real name when using games on the Internet, (create a nickname)
  • never give out a home address, phone or mobile number
  • never tell someone they don’t know where they go to school
  • never arrange to meet someone they have ‘met’ on the Internet
  • only ever use a webcam with people they know
  • tell you immediately if they see anything they are unhappy with
