From the eSafety Commissioner: Joining forces to help parents and carers protect children online

News

We know that parents and carers worry about their children online — just as we worry about them in everyday life. In fact, our national survey of over 3,500 parents shows that 94% identified their child’s online safety was important.

While being online provides many educational benefits for our children, it’s important to be aware of the risks. Any site, app or game with a chat or live video function can serve as a potential gateway for predators to contact young people.

That’s why we’ve partnered with Crime Stoppers NSW to help parents deal with risks such as unwanted contact online. By remaining engaged in your children’s online lives and knowing what they’re doing, who they’re talking to and where to report if things go wrong, you can help to minimise any potential harm.

Parents and carers play a crucial role in keeping children safe online. And eSafety is here to help along the way.
