Protecting your digital lifestyle
The Office of the Children’s Safety Commissioner has released an interactive guide aimed to help you help your children to “learn how to be safe and secure with the connected devices in your life.” You can access the iParent by following this link: https://www.esafety.gov.au/education-resources/iparent
The site offers the latest statistics regarding our Aussie kids online, and advice on managing devices and strategies for keeping your children safe. It also covers current topics such as digital legacy, digital reputation, cyberbullying, online gaming, online pornography, sexting, trolling and unwanted contact to name a few.
The site not only offers information, but it is also well resourced. You will find links to related materials and contact information for organisations that can help you with your child’s wellbeing and safety online.
