'Tis the season to be social'

Time off school means more time online. This #WakeUpWednesday we provide children with 12 tips to stay safe on social media! With kids sharing their festivities online, it’s vital that they know what to do & not to do.

In an ever-evolving online world, sometimes it’s difficult to make sense of the huge selection of apps and games available to young minds. The choices are almost endless and it’s not always possible to know which apps are age-appropriate, which games are safe to play and just what content your child is being exposed to. That’s why we’ve shared these three handy guides for parents and carers with suggested apps and games that children might enjoy using to learn and play.
