Staying safe online
Talking to your child - openly, and regularly - is the best way to help keep them safe online.
You might find it helpful to start with a family discussion to set boundaries and agree what's appropriate. Or you might need a more specific conversation about an app or website your child wants to use or something you're worried about.
