Are you keen to keep up with your child’s use of social media, gaming and other technology?

In this section, we look at the challenges your son or daughter might face online and provide links to ‘how to’ guides and expert advice to help you support them in the ever-changing digital world.

Tools & controls

There are lots of parental controls and other online tools to help your child have a safer and more private online experience, many of which are free and easy to set up.

You might already have parental controls on your child’s computer but what about their smartphone, tablet, games console and other devices? Take a look at our short ‘how to’ guides so you can help to protect them when they are online at home, at a friend’s house or out and about.

But remember, controls and tools aren’t always 100% effective and tech-savvy kids sometimes find their way around them.
