Trying to start a conversation about online safety with children can be a daunting task. There are many reasons why children may not want to talk to adults about it. One might be that they don’t think you’ll understand or that you won’t know how to help if they came to you with an online problem. It can also be hard to start a conversation about something that you might have limited knowledge about. However, with screen time increasing during the lockdown, it’s important now more than ever, to be talking to children about what they are accessing online.

In the guide, you’ll find tips such as cultivating a blame-free culture, asking them to be the teacher and ask about the risks.
