Podcast: Don’t panic, parent! Raising children in the age of the internet

In this podcast, e-safety expert Elizabeth Milovidov discusses the specific challenges faced by parents raising children in the internet era.

“Don’t panic, parent,” is her key message, combined with encouragement to adults to share in their children’s internet experiences.

“Parents should ask their children to show them their favourite websites and games, so that they can learn together,” Milovidov says. “With digital parenting, you have to bring your offline skills online.”

Dr. Milovidov was the keynote speaker at a 10 February Council of Europe ‘Safer Internet Day’ conference on digitial parenting.
