With online safety in focus given the recent concern over the momo challenge, the NSPCC website has information on keeping children safe when online at www.nspcc.org.uk/preventing-abuse/keeping-children-safe/online-safety/

Online safety tips include talking with your child about staying safe online, exploring online together, agreeing rules and managing settings and controls.

Check your child knows how to keep information private, how to block someone, report something and to speak up and not keep secrets. Remind your child that people aren’t always who they say they are and talk about what is and is not ok to share online.

The Play Matters project had produced a helpful information sheet on play and digital technology. With pre-schoolers estimated to be spending four hours a day online the document includes tips on managing screen time, including creating technology free zones.
