Let's talk about life online
Supporting children to be happy and healthy online is essential to children staying safe. As a parent or carer, the best tool to support your child in leading a safe and positive life online is open conversation. Childnet have produced a useful leaflet with practical advice and conversation starters to help you discuss the online world with your child.
Whether you are approaching these conversations for the first time, or you have already made a start, this advice can help you to support your child to use technology in a happy and healthy way.

Criminal Exploitation is when individuals or gangs target children and force them to carry out criminal activity. Exploiters may force young people to deal drugs, steal, commit violent or sexual acts and traffic them.
Children who are being criminally exploited will usually be subject to physical violence and threats – but exploiters are smart: they’ll spend months or years grooming their victims, and parents often aren’t even aware it’s happening.
If you are concerned a child is being exploited it’s important to know that you are not alone and not to blame. Click here for information about how to report concerns or gain further help and support.
