Courses to keep children safe online
Free courses to help parents keep their children safe from Internet grooming by paedophiles are being run in Eastbourne.
The courses begin next week and are aimed at parents and carers of school age children who want to learn how to keep their offspring safe on line.
They are the brainchild of East Sussex County Council and Sian Crossland and Steph Dudson, two former Cavendish School teachers who now run the Kip McGrath English and Maths Centre in Eastbourne.
"This is in response to growing concerns from parents," explained Sian and Steph. "Nowadays more and more young people are using the Internet.
"But is your child safe on the Internet? "Who are your children are talking to online? Do you know how to keep them safe? Are Facebook, MySpace and Bebo a mystery?
"These courses are for parents and carers who want to know more and advises them how they can keep their children safe."
The three two hour sessions run throughout February and will be taught by Simon Turner, who shows parents both the dangers posed by the Internet and how to help keep children safe online.
Places are limited and these can be booked by calling the centre, located within the grounds of the Dental Practice Board in Compton Place Road on 01323 720072
