Here are 10 top tips for keeping your kids safe online in this digital-age world 👉

Relate the online world to the real world. Give your kid examples that help them understand the dangers of the internet in the same way you would the physical world!

Make sure your kid understands what the rules of being online are & why. This could be in terms of time, activity types, sites allowed, etc.

If you see that your kid seems upset or secretive when online, address it immediately. Encourage open conversation, so that they feel comfortable enough to know you have their back!

Is their device running the latest antivirus software? Can the webcam be covered if necessary? Make use of parental control apps like safe search to put limitations in place!
