Digital parenting tips

Digital parenting
  • Think about how you guide your family in the real world and how you can do the same in the digital world
  • Try out the technologies your child enjoys - download some of their music and have a go at games they like
  • Talk to friends and family about how they manage their children's digital lives
  • Remind older siblings that websites they use may not be suitable for younger brothers and sisters
  • Make digital issues part of everyday conversation - talking about subjects like cyberbullying, sexting and copyright infringement
  • When you're talking about bullying, sex and relationships and other issues, don't forget to include the online aspects
  • Talk to your children about whether the issues they face are different online and offline - or how online and offline work together to complicate their lives
  • Don't be afraid to set boundaries and rules
  • Talk to your child about their online reputation
