Free time on computers and electronic devices can lead inquiring minds to come across material that can be confronting, challenging and upsetting. Such occasions can lend themselves to starting conversations with our young people.
To help with such conversations, reviewing and revising parent-friendly information can help.
The following Cybersafety websites are helpful. There are many more available, but these are all Australian sites (and mostly Government organisations), and relevant to our systems and situations. Most also include parent/carer webinars.

- Bravehearts – an organisation with a motto of: ‘Educate, Empower, Protect Our Kids’ – excellent information with a great Parent Hub. >>> Click here to view Bravehearts.
