Online Safety Program

The AMF’s Online Safety Training Program aims to discuss the use of the internet in Australian homes and the safety issues regarding the internet and social media. The program will be a half-day session and will assist mothers of school children in CALD communities to better understand what their children are viewing online, what the dangers are for young people online, and how to deal with these challenges at home. The sessions will include:

  • A description of the internet, social media and what children are looking at
  • A discussion of the role of the internet in the home
  • An overview of the different dangers for young people online e.g. cyberbullying, online predators, inappropriate content such as violence
  • How to identify behaviour or warning signs from children who are looking at bad or harmful things online
  • An computer lesson on how to monitor what children are looking at online and how to manage this in the home
