GARDAÍ are encouraging Limerick parents and their children to log on to Safer Internet Day on Tuesday,  February 8 when young people, teachers, schools and clubs will be encouraged to lead online safety campaigns in their own communities.

“The hope is that this will raise awareness for better and safer internet use”, Limerick Crime Prevention Officer, Sergeant Ber Leetch explained.

“Parents should be aware that it is never too late to start a conversation with their children about their online world and using the internet.

“The simple advice is to talk, listen and learn. A great starting point is the Webwise Parents hub https://www.webwise.ie/parents/ where you will find free guides, expert advice videos, talking points and explainers to popular apps.”
