ThinkuKnow Resources for a safer online experience over the Winter break
Access to new tech over the winter period can provide new opportunities for children and young people but also present risks.
Thinkuknow has a guide for parents which looks at how they can support their child to be safer online this season by focusing on 3 key areas: viewing, sharing, chatting and friending.
4 steps you can take to help children stay safer
Thinkuknow’s new post takes you through the importance of conversations with children and young people about communicating safely online, helping them to understand how to report anything worrying, and reminding parents and carers about setting up parental controls.
You’ll also find examples of resources that you can use to build on these conversations and develop skills and knowledge in the new year.
Help us learn more about young people and the dark web
Thinkuknow are currently working with The Children’s Society and Marie Collins Foundation to find out more about young people’s experiences using the dark web, and how they can be protected from encountering the associated risks.
