    my house rules currently are as follows to ensure safety as much as i can.. limited usage on the internet, modem is removed at night, close supervision at all times, usage of PC only in the kitchen/lounge areas, no usage in bedrooms, I check sites/history of usage, give sound advice on how to stay safe, and awareness of the pitfalls. The young people in my care are required to sign/date a online safety agreement. we discuss that types of sites to use/or not too. all sites must be age appropriate...
    sites of safety awareness and who we could report too.
    the amount of kids who meet strangers off the internet
    how many unknown sites kids can access

    I will apply what I have learnt and be more cautious with what I put online as it is out there forever. I will never arrange to meet anyone without an adult present. Videos were scary.
    Never give out any personal information
    Never send images of myself with little or no clothes on as can be screenshot.
    Never meet with anyone who I have met on the internet

    I would like the course to be taken by my teenagers. Talk keep good communication. Look for signs of distress. Everything posted on the internet is out there and can be screen shot. The list of never do's.
    Even though Children have been told they can still arrange to meet a stranger on line
    Key- Keep on top of changes
    Childrens Act 1978

    To spend more time familiarising myself with all the social media sites so that im more aware of how things can be safer
    Not to be so strict with internet access
    I need to look more at whats going on regarding social media sites
    Im not as internet aware as i thought

  6. Profile photo of Simon Kiteley Simon Kiteley says:

    Strategies will need to be adjusted depending on the age of the child and also the experience they have already had. However as a general strategy...

    Internet access will be given on a computer within the living room or dining room of the house where others are likely to be, or passing regularly; on a computer that is blocked from visiting illegal websites and sites for older children/adults. Understanding many of the dangers come from the wrong people being on otherwise safe sites, I will make using social media an activity we all do and learn about together, something that is fun but use it for learning about social media, by bring up discussions, about how it should be used and what the dangers are. For example with my step son he knows that if someone says they are a "11 year old girl" that you can't trust that, as they may not be eleven or a girl and could be a multitude ages etc.

    For older children with mobile phones in may be appropriate to say we will need to look at their phones from time to time however mainly create an environment where they fill free to talk about issues relating to safety and know they won't be judged but get understanding and help. They should understand that its good to talk about things even if they only seem minor issues rather than wait to see what happens and hope for the best but. Also I need to be aware of changes in behaviour and recognise that that might be caused by bullying (for example) on line.

    Zip It, Block It, Flag it. A very simple message to give to children.
    The wide range of different risks: Privacy, cyber bullying, cyber stalking, sexting, identify theft, inappropriate content and online grooming. Some of those we are aware of as adults but would not have considered them concerns for children.
    The different acts and laws that exist to protect children. Aware of the different Acts and now have a source to refer back to in the handbook.

    I will talk openly about the pro's and con's of the internet with the young people I care for.
    2 billion photos and 14 billion videos are uploaded each month.
    99% of 12 - 15 year old use the internet.
    I have learnt some of the risk children face when using the internet.

  8. Profile photo of Adelle Berman Adelle Berman says:

    I will be more aware of the procedures for reporting inappropriate material and the organisations that are available to protect the most venerable.
    There are things we can do to prevent and report the exploitation of children on line
    There is a very high percentage of apps and web pages that children use that I was unaware of
    It will not make any difference to my ability to look after any child in my care with the knowledge of who quoted the following quote "Anything that gets invented after you’re thirty is against the natural order of things and the beginning of the end of civilisation as we know it …until it’s been around for about ten years when it gradually turns out to be alright really.”

    internet safety is a must, checking up on what sites children have been on each night cuts down some of the risks,
    Scaring children to go with strangers works!!
    children don't learn so every child needs to be supervised as all children are vulnerable whilst using the internet
    Every parent should be aware of the dangers
