Internet Safety

Contributed by: Lorna Gray, National Youth Facilitator

What is available on the internet – and the challenges this presents – is constantly evolving and changing. ┬áIt is important to keep up to date and current.

The NZ Police are specifically saying that parents and teens should know two things:

  1. Once a picture or video leaves your phone and is sent to someone else, it is out of your control.
  2. Someone can use that picture or video against you.

Below is a list of recommended websites and information that will be helpful in helping parishes, communities, and whanau understand what children and young people are having to navigate on the internet.
