Dealing with social media posts that may upset your child

o Remain calm and non-judgemental.

o Talk to your child about what they would do if they see nasty/upsetting content and who they can talk to.

o Be curious - where have they seen this content? Can that channel/account be blocked? Ensure the child (and the parent) know how to report content. 

o Don't treat 'online' different to real life, to children online is real life. In the same way that you would talk about their day at school, their friends etc. you should have regular discussions about what they are doing online and what to do if something is concerning or upsetting them.
