wouldn't feel comfortable saying in front of you.

-Make sure you know how to use the computer and that you know of the services your child uses.

Spend time online together - your child will be able to learn from you (and possibly vice versa!).

- Learning together can open opportunities to discuss safe practice with your child.

keep the computer in a family room so that you can see what your child is doing online

discuss and establish rules for internet use and make sure your child understands the reasons behind the rules - it is not that you don't trust your child, it is about keeping them safe from people who don't have their best interests at heart.
