The Internet is an exciting place with endless opportunities for fun, games and education. It can also be an extremely dangerous place for teenagers unless it is used properly.

Make sure all laptops and computers are used in a communal area where the screen can be seen by all.

  • Social Networking and On-line Gaming:
  • NEVER include the date of birth, address or school name in the “About me” section
  • Only post photos that you would be happy to show your gran! Be careful posting photos showing your school badge, the outside of your house/school
  • ONLY accept people you know in the “real world”
  • Tell your child never to accept an invitation to move to a chat room with someone they have met while online gaming
  • If your child is subjected to any form of cyber bullying:
  • Keep a record of the abuse for future investigation
  • Webcams – Be aware of the information that is visible via the webcam – i.e. names on certificates, posters of favourite pop stars
