Starting the Conversation


Sometimes it is hard to approach the subject of your child's online life with them and is almost a taboo in some households.  The NSPCC has a range of very useful resources for families and children.  A good one to start with is “Online life and offline life is just life” which is short but gives a starting point for conversations at an age-appropriate level.  Remember to put in all of the relevant age restrictions on any new devices!
