Online relationships

"Let's talk about online relationships"

To mark Safer Internet Day 2013, the Sex Education Forum and the Anti-Bullying Alliance have teamed up to produce a guide for parents to help  children enjoy safer online relationships.

Children find internet communication and social networking fun and safe most of the time. But things can go wrong. As a parent or carer you can help protect your child by talking together about online relationships.

The guide give practical tips about how you can help your child to be in control and enjoy safe online relationships.

Children say that they want their parents to be the first to talk to them about relationships. Many parents fail to do this because they find it embarrassing or difficult. If you feel you don't have technical know-how don't worry. The main thing is to have the confidence to start talking.
