Keeping young people safe online:
Young people can spend a lot of time online and can use many different social media platforms to communicate with others and share aspects of their lives. It can be challenging for parents to know and understand what is happening online.
In our March newsletter we posted a link to Netsafe’sParents’ Guide to Instagram which can be accessed by clicking here
