The iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch have been around for many years now. As the years have gone by, the age of those who use these devices has become lower and lower.
In allowing younger (and not-so-young) children on these devices, many adults fail to consider just what they are putting into the hands of their kids. Many others know there are dangers, but are not sure how to make the device/s safer. It's just too hard.
These small devices are actually powerful computers that open up the whole, dangerous online world to our children. Without adequate protection and controls, children can so easily be exposed to terrible sites, images and people - putting both their mental and physical safety at risk.
So, what can you do to protect your child?
Have you attended a CyberSafety talk and left feeling scared, but unsure what to do?
So often, we hear from parents that they have attended 'Cybersafety' talks at their child's school.
They have come away scared - often terrified - but just don't have any idea of what they need to do to to make their family's household and handheld technology safe and secure for their children.
The solution: A practical, interactive workshop
To address this, iTandCoffee offers and regularly runs information sessions at schools, talking to parents about the specifics of how to find and use the Parental Controls features of the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.
In this session, we also look at how to track what websites the kids visit on their (or your) device, how to control the use of mobile data on the kids' devices, how to lock kids into a single app and set a time limit on their use of the device, using iCloud in a family, how all your own passwords could be fully visible to your child, and more.
Here's what a parent Karen F says about this session: "This was one of the most informative and practical digital safety courses I have ever attended. Lynette provided practical security tips and solutions that we could implement there and then. I walked away feeling empowered and informed and ready to tackle this huge digital world. Thank you Lynette - I could not recommend you highly enough."
