Below are details from the National Parents Council regarding an information evening about Internet safety that can be of interest to parents.
‘While the internet undoubtedly presents fantastic opportunities for children, it is equally clear that there are valid concerns about children spending too much time online, accessing inappropriate content, and communicating with people with intent to harm or exploit them. As parents our natural desire is to keep our children safe.’
Keeping this in mind, National Parents Council is bringing a series of free Internet Safety Information Sessions specifically designed for parents! Each virtual session aims to give you information and skills to be able to engage in your children’s online lives. It covers the benefits and risks of the internet and provides hints and tips for parents, helping children be effective, responsible, and safer Internet users. All the information you require is provided below:
When: Sessions will be taking place online via Zoom from the 9th to the 13th of October of 2023. Schedules are listed below:
10 AM and 7:30 PM: 9th – 12th of October!
10 AM: 13th October
At the end of the session, parents will also be provided with a specially designed template to enable them to work with their children to form an agreement for internet usage.
