We all have a role to play in keeping kids safe
There’s always someone you can talk to and get advice from.
You're not alone in protecting your child from online grooming. If you need support call the Parentline service in your State or Territory and talk through your options with a counsellor.
Encourage the child to talk with a counsellor if they're worried or upset about anything that happens online.
Talking helps! We’re here for your kids.
No problem is too big or too small.
We're here 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
