Keeping your children safe online

Keeping your children safe online

In today’s society most teenage boys have mobile devices and access to the internet. Parents and carers are finding it increasingly difficult to support, protect and educate their sons around the dangers associated with technologies.

ThinkUKnow is a law enforcement led education and prevention program that provides presentations to, parents, carers, teachers and students about technologies young people use, challenges they may face, and how these can be overcome.

The Australian Federal Police will be hosting a live ThinkUKnow presentation series across three days, through 15mins sessions including information, tips and advice to keep your children safe online. So if you are looking for strategies and tips to take action online, you won’t want to miss this!

3 June, 12.15pm – Part 1: What they SEE, SAY & DO online

In the first Australian Federal Police ThinkUKnow live streamed session, they will be breaking down online activities into what children and young people SEE, SAY and DO online.

By developing an understanding of the way children and young people use technology, parents and carers can confidently manage online safety challenges through a combination of simple behavioural and technical actions.

4 June, 12.15pm – Part 2: Challenges for online safety

Parents, carers and teachers need to be aware of the various challenges children and young people may face online so they can provide support and take action. Privacy, self-generated content, online grooming, coercion and extortion are all challenges parents and carers need to know about.

5 June, 12.15pm – Part 3: Tips and strategies: Taking action

In the third and final livestream they will be going through their taking action toolkit with practical behavioural and technical actions you can take to prevent online safety challenges, and how to get help if things go wrong.
