Online Safety

If someone online upsets or makes you feel unhappy tell someone you trust like your parents, family members or teachers. If you are signing up for a website and it says make a password, only ever share your password with your parents, because if you share it to everyone, someone could go online pretending to be you and do something that could get you into trouble. Always check with mum or dad if a site is okay to use before you visit to make sure you are not underage and the website is safe.
For more information on Online Safety go to Kids helpline or Online Safety.
