Internet Safety

It is your responsibility as a parent or carer to help your kids to make smart choices about who and what they find online.

The Australian Communications and Media Authority gives the following tips for parents:

  • Spend time online with your kids;
  • Help your kids use the Internet as an effective research tool;
  • Teach children that information on the Internet is not always reliable;
  • Teach your children 'netiquette';
  • Chat safely! Be aware of online 'stranger danger';
  • Set rules;
  • Be involved; and
  • Teach your kids ways of dealing with disturbing material.

Remember the best protection is parental supervision!
