Stay safe, it's summer
It's almost summer, although some children would like to stay outside and have fun there are many that may want to be browsing the internet. So this would be a good time to talk to your children or your child about staying safe online. There are many dangers online when playing games and using social media platforms so it would be advisable to make sure your children are staying safe. Even something as simple as taking a selfie and posting it online can be dangerous therefore make sure you are aware of your surroundings before taking a photo nearby where you live. Any clues to your location, such as landmarks or signs, can inform someone of your whereabouts.
This is the time of year where many children can get upset about what people may say or do online e.g. posting a negative comment about you or sharing an image or video without consent. E-saftey is becoming more and more important each day. Some children are unhappy online and yet don’t tell anybody or even report them because they are afraid - but we must educate children that they need to tell somebody or report it otherwise it will never stop. Many schools will have an e-saftey ambassador so if your child encounters a a problem online then they can go to them and they will know what to do and who they have to speak with to help them. Take this opportunity to talk with your children and see who they are playing with and what they are doing online. So stay safe online this summer.
