Facebook page for parents

With so many current changes and the speed of change, it is important for us to protect our children and keep them safe.

We at ChildSafe Australia established this group to help support parents and build a community where we can all learn and support each other.

Please share this group with other parents as we really want to grow this base, so we can bring you more information, interviews with specialists, and more…

We would love you to join, be respectful, and get ready to share and learn with each other!

This guide covers some of the key online safety issues for young people and includes a range of practical tips and advice on what to do if things go wrong.

Tips for parents and carers


inchargebox is the world’s first lockable charging box.

Using inchargebox helps to set boundaries with tech usage, taking control of the tech clutter and giving you back time & energy to enjoy all of the fun & productive screen-free things in life. Setting up an inchargebox when the kids get their first devices is a great way to manage it all from the start!


Five safety questions

We at ChildSafe have developed a set of five questions for parents to ask organisations about their child’s safety.

It is not okay anymore for parents to just drop their children off at an organisation without asking how that organisation will keep their children safe. There are too many statistics about abuse occurring in organisations, even to the point where there was a Royal Commission into institutional responses to child sexual abuse. As parents, it’s important that you are vigilant and aware of what an organisation should be doing to keep your children safe. In asking these questions, you help to keep the organisation accountable.

Talking about Puberty with Michelle Mitchell

ChildSafe is thrilled to be partnering with Michelle Mitchell to offer you her new online program, ‘Talking About Puberty’, at a discounted price. This program is so much more than discussions about body parts and body changes. It is loaded with the values that underpin healthy relationships and self-confidence, and there is a program for schools too.

Over the course of 13 videos (and accompanying discussion questions), your tween will hear from Michelle on topics like body parts, body changes, feelings about puberty, looking after a growing body, who to talk to about puberty, brain changes, managing moods, how to ask tricky questions, body safety and the opposite sex. The program mirrors and expands on the content in Michelle’s latest books ‘A Guy’s Guide to Puberty’ and ‘A Girl’s Guide to Puberty’.

The program aims to:

  • Provide straight-up, medically accurate information about the body children were born with
  • Focus on wellbeing with additional content about brain changes, body image, protective behaviours, and age-appropriate respect in relationships
  • Kick-start important conversations and emphasise the role of trusted adults
  • Offer an approach which is inclusive and takes into consideration the range of needs and backgrounds of all families
