Online Safety

How can we keep our young people safe online?

Watch this week’s video from Lynda for tips and information on online safety.

Our Virtual Chaplain says…

Right near the top of any parents/carers wish list is the desire to keep their kids safe. Life isn’t risk free but we will do (almost) anything to make sure our children are safe, even if it means putting ourselves in harms way.

This is not only true of their real world but also their online world, but for most of us, it’s a world we don’t always understand, which makes it even more scary.

The Bible doesn’t talk about online safety but it does talk about safety and where we can find it. Psalm 18 says:

The Lord is my Rock, my fortress, my place of safety.

He is my God, the Rock I run to for protection.

He is my shield; by his power I am saved.

He is my hiding place high in the hills.

So next time we fear for our children safety or even our own, let’s remember there is one to whom we can always turn.
