Unfortunately most parents are in the dark about how and where they can apply parental controls to online activity - leaving their children unsafe and exposed to the potential dangers the internet community can hold.

Young people spend an average of 12 to 13 hours a week online and yet surveys have shown that 20% of parents admit that they haven’t a strategy to warn their children about the risks of the internet. Please see the links below for our Online Safety presentation and video

We already know that:

  • Approximately 25% of girls between the ages of 9 and 16 say they’ve been upset about something that’s happened online
  • Over 90% of teen Facebook users share their real name 
  • Over 90% of teen Facebook users share pictures of themselves

With these statistics in hand, governing bodies are now urging parents to use parental controls as well as resources to help keep their children safe online.

We hope to give parents the tools they need to help navigate the minefield of issues children can now face on everything from spotting the warning signs of cyber-bullying to having a healthy body image. In addition to giving parents the confidence and support to speak to their children on such sensitive issues, we want to also provide them with pathways for where they can go for more hands on support on specific issues. Please feel free to contact us if you have additional questions.

The internet is an incredibly powerful tool, which is changing the way our children learn and stay in touch. We understand how important it is to know your child is safe and we hope parents take advantage of these resources so that they can help protect their children in this digital age.
