Keeping under-fives safe online
Children love using technology and are learning to navigate websites, online games and consoles, and touch screen technology like tablets and smart phones from a younger and younger age.
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.
If you’re not sure where to start then here’s the advice you need – great ways to begin conversations to keep your child safe online. And you can always call our O2 and NSPCC online safety helpline for free expert advice.
