Online safety conversation “icebreakers”
 
O2 have joined forces with the NSPCC on a mission to help all children and their families in the UK stay safe online. And together, we’re offering useful tools, support and guidance to help parents and carers have conversations with their children about their online lives.
 
Please follow this link and enter your contact details onto their form. This will sign you up to their regular emails which will support you to have e-safety conversations with your children. Often you need an 'ice breaker' and this is exactly what these emails set out to give you so that you can confidently approach these sometimes difficult conversations.
