During our interactive child safety talks we share current internet safety facts and useful tips to stay safe online. All figures are based on 2018 classroom surveys.

Most children are familiar with basic internet safety rules, however these are simply not enough to keep them safe online. Our talks re-enforce the necessity to follow these rules and create awareness about the latest issues facing their internet safety.

Additionally, we explain the unpleasant consequences for some children on Social Media, and how to manage social media bullying. Cyberbullying is massive issue and needs to be addressed as early as possible.

It’s vitally important that kids are taught about the internet and its magnitude from as young as possible.

All evidence indicates that children who are taught how to use the internet safely and correctly gain valuable skills, have improved childhood development, and are more successful at everything they do. It is critical that constructive online habits are established by the age of 10/11 to help prevent sexting, bullying and hurt online.

For the Parents

We are delighted to speak with Parents Groups. We will talk to parents before School, lunchtime or in the Evening. We do so in the knowledge that some parents are baffled by Phones, Social Media and hate the idea of Snapchat. We will update Parents on what we said to the kids during the time, pass on some tips and tricks for phone addicted kids

Just wanted to drop you a quick e-mail to say thank you so much. For us, I would say that was a really good turn out of parents- probably a third of families there. There is so much to get through and I think that will have been a really helpful summary. Thanks again.

"Myself, and the senior classes of Strabraggan N.S. just attended the BeSecure Online zoom talk. The talk was very informative and proved very beneficial for the children. It was clear they learned some important information and ways to stay safe while using apps and online websites. I would definitely recommend the talk to other students and teachers.

Social Media; Why use Real Names, Real Photos.

In our talk, we recommend using Real Names, Real Photos and people question this which is understandable. This is a social media preferred by many Police forces around the world.

We believe that social media accounts ought to be private, a setting which must be regularly checked, not assumed. Real Names and Real Photos mean that children are naturally more cautious and realise there is nowhere to hide. Facebook agree on this point with the Police. 

Real Name, Real Photos and Privacy (called 'My Friends only' in Snapchat) is a circle of trust where kids don't abuse each other because their accounts are real, not fake. It's called 'social' media not 'bully' media, and it should be honest, real, not fake. Many parents disagree strongly here, saying to keep my kid safe, I want you to use a fake name to keep their kids safe. We disagree equally strongly. 

Setting up fake accounts means only one thing and why would you permit your kid in such a group. Open up her social media and ask him/her to identify her friends following her. Wouldn't you feel a lot more confident if you could identify his/her friends from their profiles?  

If you can't identify them, who are they, why are they there? We don't let strangers wander through our home, so why would we do so online. Is the fake news brigade taking advantage of your kid? Your kids might say, trust me, mum, I know what I am doing, no they don't know, they are just doing the same as their friends. Friends, not followers, that what we want. Challenge your kids to explain the difference between Friends and Followers. 

Facebook tell us that followers are 10 times more likely to cause trouble online, followers with fake names, who think they are free to bully, hate, troll without fear of being identified. We speak about this regualrly on radio. If your daughter has 1000s of followers, she will get bullied, so says Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook.

That's why we say this.  Real Name, Real Photos and Privacy setting switched to 'Private', 'My Friends Only'.
