Parents: do you Know IT all?

The Know IT all CD has been a big hit with parents in Sutton and now you can use this resource online just by clicking here.

"I am delighted with this new resource. I have seen it myself and, as a new parent, I can see how valuable this will be to the parents of children and young people of all ages. We should never take for granted that our children know it all about computers and the internet. We should know what they're doing and be there to help and support them. This new resource provides a lot of information and advice for parents and I'm pleased that the main overview section is translated into seven other languages and into British Sign Language... I am also pleased that it includes sections for young people themselves and for teachers,  and fully approve of the approach Childnet has taken with this resource - having young people talking to young people about the benefits and issues associated with the internet is very powerful."

Parmjit Dhanda, MP, Minister for Children, Young People and Families speaking at the launch of the Know IT All for Parents resource.

The CEOP Report button

You'll find this on our home page and increasingly on web sites aimed at children and young people. When you click the button you'll see a range of options including one to make a report to CEOP about something which has given you cause for concern.


You can watch a short clip about using the button here.
