As we spend more time online during the nationwide lockdown it is a good opportunity to be thinking about how we can stay safe and what we can do to ensure our young people are best equip to deal with challenges they may face.
Netsafe has created the Online Safety Parent Toolkit to get parents and whānau talking about online safety. As young people spend more time online, it’s important that parents and whānau can teach their child to have a safe online experience.
While there might be a digital technology gap between what you know and what your child knows, you can still help. You have life skills, maturity and experience your child hasn’t developed yet especially when it comes to safety and security behaviours.
