In the knowFor young people, technology is central to everything they do. From connecting with friends on social media, to playing with other gamers from around the world on different multiplayer gaming platforms. For parents and carers, understanding this engagement with digital technology can be overwhelming and it can be difficult to establish boundaries. The ‘In the Know’ project has been designed and created especially with parents and carers in mind, to equip them with the key information that they need to help young people embark on their digital journeys safely. The collection of guides covers what all parents and carers should know about the most popular social media and gaming apps children are using today. Each guide includes a detailed overview of the app, outlining the age rating and key terminology parents and carers should know. The guide also highlights the risks each app poses to young people and gives detailed instructions on how to enable parental controls and safety settings.
