LSCB News: 26 May 2016
If you are a parent or carer, do check out the not-for-profit website Internet Matters. This is an excellent resource aimed to support parents and carers in keeping their children and young people safe on line. It coves a wide raise of issues that could be affecting your children from cyber bullying to on-line grooming. There is guidance on how to discuss the safe use of social media with young people and also briefings to help parents get to grips with all the different communication routes now available. If you don’t know much about SnapChat, the latest apps, or you are concerned about what your child could be exposing themselves to, this website is a good starting point for gaining confidence in parenting in a digital age. Check out @RedbridgeLSCB on Twitter for information about other free on-line resources for parents and carers.
