Two booklets on internet safety launched (News Item)

20/09/2007

The Minister of Justice, Equality and Law Reform, Mr Brian Lenihan T.D., today, speaking at the launch of two booklets on internet safety, announced that the Government has approved his proposals to establish an Office for Internet Safety and an Internet Safety Advisory Council.
Launching, on behalf of the Internet Advisory Board, the two booklets in the GET with IT! series - a revised Parents’ Guide to new media technologies and A Parents’ Guide to filtering technologies - the Minister expressed confidence that the booklets will be of great help to parents in ensuring that their children use and enjoy the wonders of the internet wisely. By taking an interest in the technologies their children use, parents can learn with them and also be aware of what their children are doing online. The message, said the Minister, is simple, as the booklets say: get involved: GET With IT!
