Online Safety Parent/Whānau Support

Netsafe has created the Online Safety Parent Toolkit to get parents and whānau talking about online safety.  As young people spend more time online, it’s important that parents and whānau can teach their child to have a safe online experience.

While there might be a digital technology gap between what you know and what your child knows, you can still help. You have life skills, maturity and experience your child hasn’t developed yet especially when it comes to safety and security behaviours.

The Parent Toolkit offers practical tips and tools that will help you talk to your child about online safety. It includes:

Quickstarter tips for parents, whānau and young people
Information to enhance your digital parenting knowledge
Details about the online risks and challenges your child may face
Advice about how you can help your child
