Internet Risks & Dangers

Information about keeping your child safe online:

  • Help your child to understand that some people lie online and therefore it’s better to keep online friends online.
  • Teach young people how to block someone online and how to report them if needed.
  • Know what your children are doing online and who they are talking to.
  • Ask them to teach you to use any applications you have never used. Keeping the computer in a family room means that you can share your child’s online experience – and that they are less likely to act inappropriately (i.e. via webcam).
  • Help your child to understand that they should never give out personal details to online friends — personal information includes their messenger ID, e-mail address, mobile number and any pictures of themselves, their family or friends.
  • If your child publishes a picture or video online, anyone can change it or share it. Remind them that anyone may be looking at their images and one day a future employer could!
  • If your child receives spam/junk email & texts, remind them never to believe them, reply to them or use them.
  • It’s not a good idea for your child to open files that are from people they don’t know. They won’t know what they contain — it could be a virus, or worse — an inappropriate image or film.
  • Always keep communication open for a child to know that it’s never too late to tell someone if something makes them feel uncomfortable.
