If you're in need of tips and advice on how to keep your child safe online, you've come to the right place.
2Simple have published a free guide entitled Parenting in a Digital World, to help parents educate their children about safe internet use and guide them towards becoming responsible digital citizens. You can download the guide here.
The advice has been divided for children from the age ranges of 5-7 and 7-11 years, highlighting the risks of the internet and the best strategies that parents can use to ensure that their children are aware of the risks involved and how to avoid them. The aim is to help parents to empower their children to make their own, informed decisions about their online activity.
