The Online Safety, Start the Chat campaign is about helping everyone in a child’s life to have a conversation about online safety.
The youngest generation of children are the first to grow up in a fully connected digital world – for them, the online world is now just as much a part of their lives as the offline world.
With technology changing so fast, it’s important to be proactive and talk about online safety early and often.
Everybody can play an important role in helping children and young people to have positive and safe online experiences – including parents, teachers, carers, siblings, grandparents, mentors and sports coaches.
If you feel unsure about how to talk to kids about online safety, you’re not alone. eSafety has a range of tools, tips and resources to help have that conversation – whether it’s today, tomorrow or in the future.
