Many of our children will be spending more time on their devices while we are staying at home.
This may be for educational, recreational or social purposes. Whichever, please
remember about their online safety- boredom can cause people to say/do all kinds
of silly things.
Try and monitor your child’s online activity,reduce their screen time and keep an open dialogue
with your child.
Go through the SMART rules below with your child to help them to understand how to keep themselves safe.
This applies to all the websites and apps they might use like Roblox, Minecraft or TikTok.
