The internet is fast paced and forever changing and the games, apps or website that your children access may change just as quickly.

Maybe your child has asked for a particular game as a Christmas or birthday present and you are unsure whether it is suitable. Playing games that are unsuitable can be a problem as this results in children using inappropriate language and playing games that have inappropriate content. If you are unsure of whether a game is appropriate, the Common Sense Media website https://www.commonsensemedia.org/ gives honest reviews for parents about games, movies, apps and even YouTube channels by rating different areas such as the level of violence and language used and suggesting an appropriate age range.

These helpful guides have been created by National Online Safety and give parents information about how the website, game or app is used, anything parents should be aware of (e.g. potential inappropriate content, chat functions that you didn’t know were available and steps to take to allow your child safe access to the app, website or game.
