It’s important to keep ahead of what risks inappropriate content might pose for your child so you can chat to them about the issues and take the correct preventative measures.

But it’s also important to think about setting the right parental controls in the places where your child is accessing online content, as it will help prevent them stumbling upon something they shouldn’t.

Here are the relevant links to step-by-step parental controls instructions for the major entertainment services & search engines.
