Is Santa bringing your child a new device this Christmas? Facebook live drop-in for parents
Will your child be safe on their new device this Christmas?
London Grid for Learning (LGFL) are hosting live events for parents, on Facebook, every Wednesday in December. Log in at 7pm to join.
Your children may have spent much more time on devices in 2020 – either for schoolwork or during leisure time. That is nothing to feel bad about, and we encourage the positive use of technology. However, as we prepare for online Christmas festivities, gifts of new devices or games, or perhaps online tutoring and catchup sessions, we wanted to let you know about an opportunity to help keep your children safe online.
There will be live drop-in sessions for parents on Wednesday evenings at 7pm on the @LGfLDigiSafe Facebook page this December (from the 9th) with tips for what to watch out for, how to stay safe, what to talk about and parental controls for new and existing devices, as well as the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
Head to facebook.com/LGfLDigiSafe to sign up for a reminder on the day. The event will be run by experts in the DigiSafe team at LGfL.
If you need general help and support over the holidays, you can call the NSPCC / O2 parent online-safety helpline on 0808 800 5002 for general advice or help with parental control settings for your home internet or devices.
