Childnet International's mission is to work in partnership with others around the world to help make the internet a great and safe place for children.
Childnet works in 3 main areas of Access, Awareness, protection and policy.
- Access and promoting quality content
- Awareness and advice
- Protection and policy
- One of the partners in UK SaferInternet Centre
Created as part of Childnet’s work in the UK Safer Internet Centre, the newly published hot topic looks at Digital wellbeing, giving guidance to parents about the impact that the online world can have on the lives of children and young people.
Our overall wellbeing is determined by the physical and emotional experiences we have on a daily basis. As technology continues to be such a huge part of our lives, from the way we represent who we are to the interactions we have with others, it too has an impact on our wellbeing. This is often referred to as your 'digital wellbeing' or 'online wellness.'
It is essentially about having an awareness of how being online can make us feel and looking after ourselves and others when online. This can include recognising the impact being online can have on our emotions, mental wellbeing and even on our physical health and knowing what to do if something goes wrong.
