Playing Online Games

Follow our TEAM tips to help keep your child safe online when playing online games:

Talk to your child regularly about what they are doing online and how to stay safe. Let them know they can come to you or another trusted adult if they’re feeling worried or upset by anything they have seen. You can use our conversation starters to support you.

Explore your child’s online activities with your child. Understand why they like using them and make sure they know what they can do to keep themselves safe.

Agree your own rules as a family when using sites, apps and games. You can use our Family Agreement template to help you get started.

Manage your technology and use the settings available to keep your child safe.
