For Parents

We know that parents want the best for their children, but many would like to learn more about how to keep their children safe online. Here you will find information and support to guide you in helping your children stay safe online, as well as the next available webinars that you could attend to upskill yourself.

What's new?

As part of our Digital Offering, we are delivering webinars about online safety to parents. Delivered live by a Barnardos trainer, these free 45 minute parent webinars about online safety are taking place in March, April, and May 2021.

See below to register your place on a webinar, and download this flyer for more information.

Our objective is that parents leave these webinars feeling empowered; they will have an awareness of the risks online for children and practical tips that will help them keep their children safe and resilient online.

After completing a webinar on online safety, parents will be able to:
  • outline the key risks for children being online
  • implement practical solutions and tips to help their children stay safe online
  • reflect on how they might help their children if they were cyberbullied or cyberbullying
  • identify helpful websites and signpost them to others

More Information 

To help parents who may have been worried at the increased screen-time of their children, in collaboration with Google, we developed 5 short videos that we hope will help. Many of these online safety messages are still relevant now.

Video lessons for parents

We couldn't deliver our face to face workshops because of Covid19 restrictions and developed these videos for parents about online safety to help. Each video is under 5 minutes long and you can choose to watch them one by one, or as a mini-presentation. Please click on the title below to watch more

Many of the videos signpost to Be Internet Legends, an interactive game about online safety for children aged 7-11 that allows them to explore different lands and learn about cyberbullying, scams and how not to over share personal information. There is also information about Family Link, a form of parental controls, this app allows parents to monitor how long their child is online for and keep track of what they are downloading.
