National Online Safety Booklet


It can be challenging for parents and caregivers to know whether children are spending too much time on their devices and it’s even more of a challenge to know whether a child is addicted to the internet and social media. As technology is becoming more pervasive, children and young people are experiencing tech – related dependencies.

Do we as parents and caregivers have the knowledge to identify and support children and young people who may be developing an unhealthy addiction to their devices or becoming victims of cyber crime?

In this guide, you’ll find twenty eight pages of tips on topics such as location tracking, parental controls, screen addiction, gaming disorder, cyber crime and more. Also included are individual fact pages on apps your kids are using now to help you educate yourself on TikTok, Snapchat, Facebook, Whatsapp, Minecraft, Instagram and more.
