· Think about how you guide your family in the real world and how you can do the same in the digital world.

· Try out the technologies your child enjoys – download some of their music and have a go at games they like.

· Talk to friends and family about how they manage their children’s digital lives.

· Remind older siblings that websites they use may not be suitable for younger brothers and sisters.

· Make digital issues part of everyday conversation – talking about subjects like cyberbullying, sexting and copyright infringement.

· When you’re talking about bullying, sex and relationships and other issues, don’t forget to include the online aspects.

· Talk to your children about whether the issues they face are different online and offline – or how online and offline work together to complicate their lives.

· Don’t be afraid to set boundaries and rules.

· Talk to your child about their online reputation.
