In our ever-changing world it is highly important that we do our best to keep up to date with new initiatives and technologies. Technology can be fun and very helpful in all our lives and we must not forget the benefits that advances in technology can bring us.
However, there are occasions, especially for children, where technology could be deemed detrimental. It is with this in mind that we are pulling together a selection of resources and links so that you, as parents can become better informed about how to keep your children safe. Hopefully you will find these resources useful in helping you to raise your own awareness and the awareness of your children. Please bare in mind, that banning and blocking the use of technology or sites does not replace your parenting. Whilst you can't know everything, it is important to read and educate yourself and your child.
