Helping Parents to Help their Children Online

On 6 September 2015 the government launched a new online resource to help give parents the best possible advice and tips on preparing their children for adult life .

The new online service, called Parent Info –, will give parents the information they need to help them navigate the minefield of issues children can face while using social media and the internet. The service can help parents in a number of ways from spotting the warning signs of self-harm, to supporting their child to have a healthy body image and building children’s ‘digital resilience’.

The site also aims to give parents the confidence and support to speak to their children about these issues as well as directing them to where they can go for more support on specific issues.
