Safety on the Internet

It can be great to encourage our children to use the computer in order to build on their IT skills as we live in a technology savvy world.  However, it is important to ensure the safety of our children when they browse the internet, especially as they cannot always be supervised by their parent or teacher.

Promoting internet awareness in our child is important as it makes them think before they access certain websites. Internet awareness works in very much the same way as Stranger Danger does in the physical world.  Therefore we need to make sure that our children know what is okay on the internet and what they should avoid.

Controls

There are special parental controls and add-ons provided by Google and other companies that will help ensure safe browsing for your children. You can install these and they pretty much work as a filter to remove anything not child appropriate or they prevent your child from accessing these inappropriate sites. However some websites only ask for a date of birth as proof of age, so the system is not unbreakable.

Whether you specialise in teaching IT or in general studies, Red Box Teachers will provides you with new job opportunities that are suited to you.
