Lincolnshire Police are supporting the NSPCC in their campaign, launched today, to help parents keep their children safe online.

The campaign Share Aware is aimed at parents and carers of children aged 8-12, at the point when they start doing more online, become more independent and use a greater range of devices.

Share Aware is encouraging parents and carers to understand online safety and to have conversations with their children about keeping safe, as this can help build trust, openness and get preventative messages across.

It is to help those parents who feel confused by the internet and out of their depth in understanding what their children are doing online and what the risks might be.

With the Share Aware campaign parents have the tools and confidence to have these conversations, directing them to a range of new resources, including Net Aware, a simple NSPCC guide to the social networks, sites and apps children use – as rated by parents and young people themselves.

There is a downloadable guide and a hard copy booklet for parents, containing top tips for keeping your child safe online, as well conversation starters to help parents have conversations with their children.

All these resources will be available at www.nspcc.org.uk/shareaware
