Managing Your Media- for parents

Thank you to Safetynet for the following Information;

To support Adult Learners' Week<> (9-15 May) Ofcom has today published the first in a series of Managing Your Media guides designed to promote media literacy across the UK.

Available as a video and downloadable guide, this resource is intended to show parents and guardians how to use parental controls and filters to manage their children's access to digital TV and internet content. The guide also encourages parents and guardians to talk to their children about what they do on the internet and how to use it safely.

Ofcom research found that 57 per cent of children aged 8-15 mostly watch TV without an adult in the room. Similarly, half of all children aged 8-11 and two-thirds of those aged 12-15 mostly use the internet without an adult present.

The video and guide can be found at
