Digital Wellbeing

 

 

Young people are growing up in a world where technology has always been present for them and this can have a positive and negative impact on their lives.

On the one hand going online can mean being connected to friends, sharing experiences and learning new things but all of these experiences can also pose challenges for young people. With the online world being such a huge part of young people's live today, it's very important that we can help them to understand how to use it safely, sensibly and with an awareness of how it can impact on them.

Using filters to block explicit content and having frank conversations are just a few of the ways you equip them with tools to deal with it.'
