Internet Safety

The Australian Government has a dedicated site for informing families about how to safely use the internet and world wide web. Click here for more information.

The internet offers an exciting world of experiences for children and the whole family. It can be entertaining, educational and rewarding — and provides countless opportunities to create, connect and communicate. However, just as in the real world, these rapidly developing technologies also have risks and challenges.

As a parent, you can play an important role in helping your children have safe and positive experiences online. By becoming aware of how children and young people use the internet, what they use it for, the risks in being online and some of the strategies to manage these risks, you can help guide them in the online world.
