Online safety tips for the Christmas break

This year, many of us will be relying on tech over the festive period for entertainment and, most importantly, to keep in touch with friends and family.


Here are a few of our resources that you can share with parents, carers and children and young people to help them have a safer online experience over the winter break.


Being social online this December: a parent's guide

Access to new tech over the winter period can provide new opportunities for children and young people but also present risks. 

Thinkuknow's guide for parents looks at how you can support your 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.


Have a very Happy (and safe) Christmas!
