Parent Info is a collaboration between CEOP (formerly Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre) and Parent Zone.
Parent Info provides high quality information to parents and carers about their children's wellbeing and resilience. This service is free and ranges across a wide range of subject matter, from difficult topics about development, relationships and the internet or body image and peer pressure to broader parenting topics like ‘how much sleep do teenagers need?’
In line with CEOP’s Thinkuknow programme, some of the content covers internet safety, but it all starts from the assumption that young people make little distinction between their online and offline lives and the issues for parents are often the same. The aim is to help parents help their children be discriminating, web-literate and resilient.
This is a really useful website for parents/carers - please take a look using the following link:
