During Covid-19 our Children and Young People may have been spending more time than usual online or on gaming devices.
It can be hard for parents, grandparents, teachers and carers to keep up with the latest games, apps and social media. To help with this, the NSPCC site http://www.net-aware.org.uk provides important information on the activities your children may be undertaking.
On the main screen there is a search box, simply key in the name of the particular game, App or social media and it will give you a summary of what it is, identify any risks and explain how you can take simple steps to make things safer.
It also includes useful information such as:
- Age rating
- An expert view of the risks
- Top tips for usage
- Top tips for staying safe
