#WakeUpWednesday: Online Safety Tips for Parents and Carers to Keep Children Safe Online Over Summer

The advent of the school holidays may temporarily release parents from daily considerations like “Have they done all their homework?” and “Where did I last see that backpack?” … but it often replaces those concerns with substitute stresses such as “Is he honestly going to play on that video game all day – again?” and “Who’s she been chatting to online all afternoon?”


Many young people’s knee-jerk solution for entertaining themselves this summer will be to reach for an internet-enabled device. There’s nothing intrinsically wrong with that – but it does put pressure on parents in terms of online safeguarding. Our #WakeUpWednesday guide has some useful tips that trusted adults might like to remind themselves of as the school holidays begin.
