The online world can give children a number of opportunities but it is just as important to give them the confidence to take advantage of these safely. Mum and blogger Victoria Welton gives insight into what she does to help her child share safely online.
Getting use to oversharing culture
I am the eldest of seven children so you can probably imagine that trying to keep any secrets in our household growing up was probably nigh on impossible. I was used to an oversharing culture before it even became a ‘thing’! So, when my daughter came along, I wanted to make sure I maintained at least some privacy for her.
However, in a day and age where is becoming the norm to share your life over social media, I am mindful of how I educate her in the ways of Facebook, Twitter and the like.
