Crazy 2 Months

Posted on 25 April, 2016 at 11:20

Thank you to everyone that has made the last two months an incredible experience for us.

We have managed to deliver our message, via the 'Walk Online Roadshow' to over 7000 children across Essex (I hate to think how many that averages a day)

The feedback we have been receiving has been amazing be it from Children or Adults.

We are now so busy that our diary stretches into the new school year so any thoughts of putting our feet up in the near future will have to wait.

Some recent feedback that has inspired us

.........................

‘I found this talk hugely informative, up to date and very engaging. It is unfortunate that it is

relevant to the world we now live in, however taking this information forward it means that as

parents we are better informed and are able to protect our children accordingly. Having statistical

information about what our children had confirmed earlier on in the day was very thought provoking

and added an even stronger emphasis on the messages being given to us as parents. My child also

found his talk very informative. He advised us that it gave him more in depth information to areas we

had already touched upon in the home regarding Internet safety, and because someone other that his

'nagging parents' told him, he now believes the dangers are really there. Once again, thank you! I

understand the difficulty you faced deciding to show this and I truly believe that by doing so you

have helped to protect so many children in our school.‘

............................

‘I just wanted to pass my thanks on to the school for arranging the Internet safety evening last

night, the information that was passed on to us parents was very much needed and I for one am after

last nights meeting very naive when it comes to what our children are able to access online and

although it was very frightening at times it was also very eye opening and enlightening. I am so

thankful to the school for setting up the safety evening so I am able to get prepared and hopefully

do my best to keep my child safe whilst he accesses the World Wide Web.‛

..............................

‘I would like to say how grateful I am to have had the opportunity to attend last night's talk.

I left with my head spinning trying to process all the information received. It certainly changed my

whole perspective on internet safely and has completely changed the way I will now deal with this

issue. We have probably already had more discussions with the kids today than ever previously

before. Thank you so much for arranging this event ,it has been greatly appreciated.‛

...............................

‘I felt the evening was extremely informative for parents, opening our minds to the easy yet

seemingly innocent opportunities for the exploitation of children. I was shocked by some things, and

learned more about the methods used to groom children for sexual activity or radicalisation. I felt

proud of our community that so many parents made the effort to attend and more so, that our school

were generous enough to pay for this, for the safety of all our children. This morning my son asked

what I had thought about it and it gave me a valuable opportunity to communicate with him about the

content and how we would face these things, should it ever occur. It was a great time to let him know

that I would never ban or blame him. I do not think we can talk about this enough with our children,

especially when as adults we have already instilled the ideas of child safety from our own childhood

learning! If they can take that in then we can continue to teach them and talk to them to ensure

their safety online too. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to approach Internet safety with my

children and access to the thinkuknow website via the link on the school‛s web page. It's reassuring

to know that the school already had this on there and that at its heart, the safety of our children is

obviously paramount.
