#Unboxing Online Safety: Yubo Partners with Internet Matters for a Festive Campaign
This holiday season, Yubo is delighted to announce its partnership with Internet Matters, a London-based nonprofit organization dedicated to providing child internet safety advice to parents, caregivers, and professionals.Yubo is supporting the #Unboxing Online Safety campaign, a special initiative aimed at providing practical advice to foster better online safety habits in kids and teens, as they look forward to receiving and enjoying new devices and gadgets that expand their access to online communities.
During the holiday season, from 11th December, Internet Matters will present a daily online safety tip for parents through a festive Digital Calendar. Yubo, as Internet Matters partner, contributed expert insights on maintaining open communication and effective supervision of children's device usage.
To add excitement to the campaign, there’s the chance to win a range of great prizes including a brand-new Apple iPad supplied by Yubo. By participating in the campaign, parents not only gain valuable insights into online safety but also stand a chance to unwrap a nice tech gift.
To kick off the #FestiveFortnight, Internet Matters is unboxing the crucial question: 'What makes an online friend?' In a world where children interact with multiple individuals online, it's essential for parents to initiate conversations with their kids about the qualities of a true friend.
1. Talk with them about what it means to be a friend: Explain that online friendships, just like offline friendships, are respectful and filled with trust and kindness.
2. Explain the difference between an online friend and an offline friend: The information we share with our friends from school will be much different than what we share with friends online. Help them understand what should stay private.
3. Ask them to show you their favourite apps and sites: Explore the communication options and safety features, and what they can do if their online friend isn't treating them in positive ways.
The campaign emphasizes the importance of respect, trust, and kindness in online friendships, mirroring the values of offline connections.
