Managing your child’s safety on the internet

There is lots of advice around about this subject.

It is important to know what your children can see or do on the Internet. Younger children often have an adult sitting with them, but as children grow older and more confident, they often have Internet access on computers, iPods etc in their rooms, which is more difficult to regulate.

Their ThinkUKnow site also has advice and activities for protecting children when they are online.
