The Australian Government’s Office of the Children’s eSafety Commissioner has some wonderful resources and in particular the ‘iParent’ portal, and the current 'Screen Smart Parent tour'.
The 10 minute interactive tour is for parents of pre-teens and young teens (10 to 14 years). It has plenty of tips and practical steps along the way so you can help your child explore safely and manage online issues should they arise. This is especially important at this age as they strive for independence and peer acceptance.
There are no right or wrong answers and you’ll get to see how other parents responded to the same questions.
Keep the conversation going with your child about being a safe and responsible digital citizen.
Please be aware that teaching staff are available if you have any concerns regarding cyber safety or digital citizenship.
