Use this as an opportunity to talk to your child about their use of the internet.
With children and parents spending more time at home, now is a great time to continue to chat with your child about how they are using online technology and what it means to them. Their use of apps and games may have changed since the outbreak, so now is a good time to check in!
Tell your children to report anything that worries them
It’s important that children and young people always know where to go if they come across something that worries them or makes them feel uncomfortable online. Remind them regularly that you’re there to help.

Setting parental controls can be a quick and effective tool to help protect your children online, and should be installed on all devices that children use. To help ensure their safety while using online resources you can find lots of advice on how to set parental controls for YouTube, Google and Broadband suppliers on our e-safety Parents' page - Keeping Safe Online (link below).
