Kids and cybersafety

  |   19/02/17

The risks that present themselves when children use the internet are widely acknowledged, and while our churches should be vigilant in how WE use the internet in our ministries to children, the parents of the kids in our ministries have a bigger challenge when it comes to working out what is good, what is harmful when their kids engage with the online world.

Much of church concern in this field has focussed (helpfully) on pornography, but there are much broader issues faced by parents.

This article is part of the government-run website esafety.gov.au and includes the infographic below showing what parents are concerned about when it comes to their children being online, and offers resources to help tackle problems when they arise.

If something in the infographic stirs your concern or interest, head over to https://esafety.gov.au  for resources and assistance.
