Our children are growing up with technology and the internet as a major part of their lives. Guiding them in their use of technology and keeping them safe online presents a unique challenge to 21st century parents. In response to multiple requests for help, CViE have prepared a set of resources as follows:

  • Screen Safety and Security: A Practical Guide – This introductory leaflet provides some background, considers Biblical principles and presents 10 practical tools / strategies for managing screen safety and security.
  • Screen Safety and Security: Resource Pack – Supplements the leaflet, building on the 10 practical tools and providing links to external information, resources, step by step guides etc. for each of them.
Coming soon...
  • Screen Safety and Security: Introductory Presentation – As presented at the CViE National Event 2018
Screen Safety and Security: A Practical Guide is also available as a printed leaflet – if you would like copies please contact CViE.

A video of the short introductory presentation covering these resources and given at our 2018 National Event is available via YouTube here.

These resources look at the practical strategies and tools in three key areas:
  • Content – managing what is accessed
  • Time – managing when and for how long
  • Social Media – managing interactions with others

Each of these is considered for different methods of connecting to the internet, for different types of device, for different makes of device and for different software / apps installed on these devices.

The aim is to provide a roadmap and signposts to assist parents in making informed decisions. We trust these resources will be useful, but please use them as a starting point for your own research.
