Cyber Resilience and Internet Safety – A Guide for Parents and Carers

The following message and attached guide has been circulated on behalf of Child Protection Charity Stop it Now !

The attached guide provides advice and information on digital parenting.
It will help you speak to your child about safety online in a positive way. It will also signpost you to resources that will help you manage and reduce risks online for your child. Learning to safely navigate the internet and online platforms is like learning to cycle or swim: children need adult support and supervision to learn to do this safely. They need this support before they can use the internet independently.

This guide was created to support online safety training for kinship carers in Scotland. It will be valued by all parents and carers across Scotland. It can be used to support children of any age, but it has a particular focus on the digital resilience of teenagers. This is because of the particular challenges we face keeping adolescents - who are more independent - safe online.
If you have any concerns for a child’s safety and child sexual abuse, then please take action now. Stop It Now!’s confidential UK Helpline (0808 1000 900) is open Monday to Friday, and available for anyone with concerns about child sexual abuse. Callers do not need to give identifying information, so can remain anonymous. We speak to thousands of people every year, helping them take action to protect children and young people from sexual abuse and exploitation.

You can also contact us at our Scottish Office on 0131 556 3535 or at scotland@stopitnow.org.uk if you have any questions raised by this handbook. We would love to hear from you!

Please share the attached guide with family, friends, and colleagues as appropriate.
