Family Lives is very pleased to be supporting Safer Internet Day 2019 celebrated across the world on Tuesday 5 February. The theme for Safer Internet Day 2019 is 'Together for a better internet.'


 Safer Internet Day is celebrated globally in February each year to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and young people and inspire a national conversation. 

If you're a parent, there are lots of ways you can support your child when using the internet. You can read our guide to the latest social media apps and how old your children should be to use them. If you are worried about bullying on social media, we have lots of advice and tips on this.
