Recent research has indicated that 73% of 9-16 year olds report using the internet daily at home, somewhat above the European average of 59%. Irish children's use of mobile technology (i.e. tablets, mobiles, game consols) to access the internet is also above the European average with just under 60% of children using their smartphone to go online daily (O’Neill & Dinh, 2015).

While parental control software such as Net Nanny will block unsuitable web sites, monitor chat rooms and emails and send reports to parents, such software does not educate children on how to behave safely while online. The growing popularity of mobile internet access (i.e. smart phones, laptops, game consoles) adds further difficulty as children are now accessing the internet without the filters typically applied on home computers.

The best parental control, when it comes to internet and mobile technology safety, is parental involvement. MGMS Training Limited offers parents, teachers and those working with children, an insight into what is currently popular, what the dangers are and how best to avoid them. For children, MGMS Training provides education and up to date information on how to stay safe online.

quotes

  We were absolutely delighted with the talk given to the parents of Summercove National School, Kinsale. The benefits of being aware of the potential dangers involved and to become acquainted with the "lingo" can only but help us to stay in tune with our children"
