Parents’ and Carers’ Guide to the Internet

Safer Internet Day 7 February 2012

Safer Internet Day

The internet has changed all of our lives, particularly our children’s. For parents and carers this opens up a whole new world of things to be aware of. For many of us, this can all be a bit too much.

You might be struggling to keep up with the things your child or teen is doing online, you might wonder whether what they are doing is safe.

The Thinkuknow website aims to make online parenting simple with practical tips and simple guidance for parents and carers of primary and secondary school children.

Especially for Safer Internet Day,  The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) are broadcasting ‘The Parents’ and Carers’ Guide to the Internet’ from thinkuknow.co.uk/parents and youtube.com/ceop

Think U Know
This is an entertaining and light-hearted look at what it takes to be an online parent. With interviews from experts including Dr Tanya Byron and Dr Linda Papadopoulos, industry players like Facebook and Moshi Monsters and, most importantly, children themselves this TV-style show aims to answer all of the tricky questions parents may be afraid to ask.
