Using the story of Nettie and Webby, adults can introduce cybersecurity to young children and start the conversation about going online safely.

This book takes Nettie on her first adventure in Cyberland with her new friend Webby, where she finds not everything is cute and fluffy. Relevant links are included at the end of the book to help parents and carers further their understanding of risk and protection on the Internet.

I wrote this book with two dreams in mind.
Firstly, I wanted to help small children who are using computers, tablets and phones learn that they have to take care, just like when they cross the road. We don t wait for our children to need to cross the road by themselves before we teach them about road safety; we start talking about crossing when the green man lights up while they are still in a buggy. The sooner children learn how to cross safely, the safer they will be, even when they learn harder road safety such as crossing without signals. We can introduce cyber safety in a similar fashion - simple ideas for a child to learn as they use the Internet for different things, and in different ways.
Secondly, I want you - the adults who are reading this story to children - to be able to talk to the children about safety in Cyberland, or the Internet. Nettie s adventures are a way of opening a dialogue with children about behaving in a safe manner. As I developed this book, many adults told me that they don t know where to start talking about computer safety with children; it makes them afraid and powerless, even useless , because they don t have all the answers. But if you start the conversation while the child is young, that trust will encourage them to tell you about what they see, what other children tell them, and what they like or dislike about the Internet. Your knowledge can grow with theirs.
At the end of this book I have put website addresses for trusted resources that can help you understand the subject more, and find clear, detailed answers to questions this book doesn t cover. You may find some things that you can share with the child in your care, expanding your discussion of safety beyond Nettie s stories.
Most of all, this story is not designed to make children anxious about the Internet (or, in this story, Cyberland). It is here to help them learn how to behave sensibly. At the end of the story Nettie isn t hurt, or missing in a dark forest: she is home safe in bed. That is the most important message of all. At the end of the day, children want places of trust and safety they can retreat to, and that s where you come in.
