Scenarios and Guidance for Enhanced Online Safety
To illustrate the importance of online safety, let’s consider a few common scenarios that families may encounter:
Scenario 1: A 12-year-old boy receives a message from an unknown sender on a social media platform. The message contains a link to a website that promises free video games. The boy clicks on the link, unwittingly downloading malware onto his family’s computer.
Guidance: Parents/ guardians should educate their children about the dangers of clicking on links from unknown sources. They should also encourage them to report any suspicious messages or activities to a trusted adult.
Scenario 2: A 14-year-old girl is cyberbullied by her classmates. The bullying takes place on a messaging app and escalates to threats of physical violence. The girl is afraid to tell her parents, fearing further retaliation.
Guidance: Parents should establish open communication channels with their children, emphasising that they are always there to listen and support them. They should also encourage children to report cyberbullying incidents to school authorities or law enforcement.
Scenario 3: A 10-year-old boy spends excessive time playing online video games, neglecting his schoolwork, social interactions, and physical activities. The boy’s parents worry about the potential negative impact on his overall well-being.
Guidance: Parents should set clear guidelines for screen time and encourage their children to engage in a variety of activities that promote their physical, mental, and social development. They should also establish regular family time that is free from electronic devices.
