• YouTube, and other video hosting sites, can be a useful learning tool. They also contain some very violent and graphic clips. Agree upon how these are to be used in your home.
  • Discuss comments on YouTube with your children. Many YouTube comments are highly negative, and some young people are cyber bullied by others through this comment platform. Discuss why this is not appropriate with your child.
  • It is critical to discuss with your child the permanency of anything posted online on video hosting sites. It is not possible to totally remove something which has been posted on the internet. Discuss how this can affect someone’s digital reputation which can have long-term and unforeseen consequences.
