ONLINE SAFETY EDUCATION SAFETY KIT The Internet Society Trinidad & Tobago (ISOC-TT) Chapter has begun an effort focusing on the promotion of Child Online Safety in Trinidad and Tobago. In Commonwealth countries such as Uganda, many of the issues being faced are similar to ours. Not only that, due to our shared colonial histories, the laws and legal systems are quite comparable.
It’s really important that the Trinidad & Tobago community equips its children and youth with online literacy skills, and empowers them to recognize and avoid dangers on the Internet.

Guidance for parents and young people about cyberbullying, including advice for ending (or preventing) the cycle of aggression.
Some studies say only 4.5% of teens have ever been cyberbullied and others say the figure's as high as 24%
For many teenagers, their online life is an important part of their social identity. Many young people fear that parents might take away their devices and refuse access to the internet and so do not report cyberbullying to their parents.
Practical, issue-focussed information and advice for parents of children of all ages.
