Parenting in the Digital Age (PitDA)

 Parenting in the Digital Age (or PitDA for short) is a new programme to help parents apply their parenting skills to the online world.

The PitDA website provides guidance & support to help make sure that your children stay safe, to help you navigate the risks and help your children enjoy their online lives.

There are three areas to think about:

 WHO your child is talking to,

 WHAT they’re doing, and

 WHERE they’re going online
