Thinkuknow has published guidance for parents and carers to support children who may be spending more time online at home while they do their schoolwork and socialise with friends. Suggestions to help parents keep children safe online include: chatting to find out how they use online technology and what it means to them; reminding children to report anything worrying, and how they can do this; and setting up or reviewing parental controls.
