In the 21st Century, our children have access to technology that gives them access to a world of information and opportunities. Sadly, it also opens them up to a world of danger. Social media providers give suggested age limits for their service but, not everyone follows these. Click on the yellow image, above, to visit the NSPCC Net Aware website!
With this in mind, we have provided a link here to an excellent resource from the NSPCC; Share Aware. This resource equips you, as the responsible adult, with the tools and techniques to talk to your child; the ability to get family support; the power to be a good example and the knowledge of what to do to protect your child if things go wrong.
NetAware is the NSCPP's simple app for parents to the most popular social networks, apps and games that children use.
You can easily find age ratings, parent and child reviews and how likely it is that a child could find inappropriate content.
Download the app today, so you'll always have help keeping children safe online wherever you go.
"The Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre is dedicated to eradicating the abuse of children. That means we are part of UK policing and very much about tracking and bringing offenders to account either directly or in partnership with local and international forces.
But our approach is truly holistic. Walk through the CEOP Centre today and within any one team you will find police officers specialising in this area of criminality working with professionals from the wider child protection community and industry. You will find seconded staff from organisations such as the NSPCC, teams sponsored by the likes of VISA and SERCO and experts from government and corporations such as Microsoft offering specialist advice and guidance."
