Online Safety: Christmas Update


If your child is getting a new phone or tablet for Christmas, you may wish to consider some monitoring software to keep a parental eye on what they're doing. There are plenty available to download, some are free some you have to pay a small subscription. An article explaining some of the more popular monitoring apps can be seen HERE (https://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/best-parental-control-apps/) .

For advice and instructions on setting up the most popular devices (parental controls, internet filters etc.) see the Internet Matters website HERE (https://www.internetmatters.org/parental-controls/interactive-guide/)

If you are buying a new game for your child, make sure you are happy with it first. Just because "everybody else has got it" doesn't mean it's appropriate for your child. Check on the Common Sense Media website first - click HERE (https://www.commonsensemedia.org)
