Talk about how they can stay safe on social networks

Ask your child if they know:

  • where reporting functions are
  • how to block someone
  • how to keep information private.

Show them how to do these things. Use Net Aware to help you.

Talk about online privacy, and being Share Aware. Explain that online behaviour – including sharing personal information – should mirror behaviour in person.

Explain that talking to strangers isn't always 'bad', but they should always be careful about what they share and sometimes people aren't who they say they are.
