Cybersafety Resources for Parents

There are a wealth of resources produced and updated regularly to help parents stay in touch with cybersafety issues and deal with the ever-growing pervasive use of digital devices in their students’ lives.

Chatterbox is an informal and informative resource designed specifically to assist parents in understanding and dealing with cyber related issues. Structured in short episodes and conversations, Chatterbox covers topics including how to support your child if they are involved in cyberbullying, how to use parental controls to limit or restrict internet/content accessibility, how to balance screentime and downtime and understanding trolling, tagging and bragging.
