Tuesday 8th February is Safer Internet Day. Online gaming plays an important part in many children and young people’s lives. It provides them with entertainment, opportunities to learn new skills and allows them to stay connected with their friends. But just like with other online platforms, there can be risks involved.
This Safer Internet Day the NSPCC is challenging you to host an online games night. This is to help get to know your child’s favourite platforms, and open up the conversation around how you can support your child to help keep them safe. To play the game visit - https://bit.ly/3rh7Mte
