Safer 6: Help keep children safe online with a free Online Safety (Extremism) and Prevent webinar for parents and adult community members
If you are a parent or carer, do you know what your children are doing online?
Sandwell Council’s Prevent Team are taking part in Sandwell’s Safer 6 campaign by offering free online safety (Extremism) and Prevent sessions. Parents/carers and adult members of the community can join the free online session on 1st December 2022 and receive tips and advice to keep young people safe online.
Top tips include:
- Turn on filters/parent control settings
- Set accounts on private and report any issues through the apps
- Be ‘share aware’
- Keep up to date with online safety – the online world changes quickly
- Know where to access further support
Parents are encouraged to talk openly to their children about their online activity and help them understand what is safe and unsafe. The internet is a great tool, but can also be a tricky place to navigate with some misleading information.
