Things to watch out for
Here are some common signs of grooming that you should be aware of. It doesn’t mean that your child is being groomed, but signs to look out for if you’re worried:
  •  Excessive use of the computer
  • Aggressive behaviour regarding internet usage
  • Secretive behaviour
  • Change in use of sexual language
Our Advice to Parents
  • Know what your children are doing online
  • Ask them to teach you to use any applications
  • Keep the computer in a family room - this means you can keep more control of what they do (i.e. Webcams)
  • Help your children to understand that they should never give out personal details to online friends - personal information includes:
    • their messenger id
    • email address
    • mobile number and any pictures of themselves,
  • If your child receives spam / junk email & texts, remind them never to believe them. Reply to them or use them.
