If you would like to understand more about how to keep your children safe online, have any concerns you would like support with, or need to report an incident, go to the CEOPs Thinkuknow website.
Five, six or seven year olds probably like to use the computer for fun. Eight to eleven year olds think they know a lot about using the internet. The Thinkuknow website can help them, and you, to know what's good and what’s not and show them ways to get out of bad situations.
The website will help them to go on the internet in a safe way and know who to talk to if they are worried. Most importantly, there’s also a place which anyone can use to report if they feel uncomfortable or worried about someone they are chatting to online.
