Cyber(Smart) Parents

"Many children as young as Year 4 are competent users of technology," says Greg Gebhart from Cybersafety.  Parents need to be informed to enable them to help their children manage this use of technology and to stay safe.  For tips on staying safe, it’s worth viewing the Cyber Smart website and encouraging your child to check out the kids and teen sections.

The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) aims to give children and their parents and carers sound advice on how to best manage on-line risks so their experiences are safe and positive.
