Key message

Families communicating and working together to stay safe online

Good digital parenting is an online resource developed by the Family Online Safety Institute (FOSI) that provides parents and caregivers with the tools they need to confidently navigate the online world with their families. It is important to have an open communication between family members so that online safety guidelines such as setting ground rules for screen time and turning on safety settings can be established.

This resource is regularly updated to keep it up-to-date with new technologies. It contains video series and a downloadable guide to the 7 steps of good digital parenting.

Families can also get help from the family online safety agreement to choose the best rules for the family.

School communities can use the GDP Toolkit for parents who need more information.
