How To Be Aware of Your Child’s Privacy Settings
With so much time spent online in today’s world, it’s important to be aware of your child’s privacy settings and how they might be sharing information online to help with reducing inappropriate contact.
Think U Know Australia have developed a learning activity to help parents, carers and their children aged 8-12 years learn about the types of information that can be revealed through the images and conversations they share.
Children and young people are expected to spend a lot more time online during COVID-19, including staying connected to friends and family, playing games or for online learning.
Now more than ever, it is important parents and carers remain aware of potential challenges, and equip themselves with the tools needed to protect their children from online child sexual exploitation.
Education is critical for prevention and keeping children safe online.
By understanding what young people SEE, SAY and DO online and the challenges they may face, parents and carers are more equipped to help their children navigate some of these issues and know what to do if their child needs help. Think U Know Australia provide free resources to support learning from home.
ThinkUKnow is a free, evidence-based online safety program that provides presentations to Australian parents, carers and teachers and students. It provides information on the technologies young people use, the challenges they may face, and importantly, how they can be overcome. Presentations are delivered face to face or digitally.
