The current events surrounding the Ukraine conflict may spark discussions, or trigger upset around what is happening with your child. Unfiltered content search terms, such as bombing and invasion on social media such as tiktok, video footage being shared and a range of other posts around world war 3, quite rightly may cause an emotional response.

Childnet have released a resource to help parents engage in these discussions, please see the link below.

Supporting your child if they see upsetting content online about what is happening in Ukraine | Childnet

I have also added their “conversation starter” cheat sheet which will help you as parents with a simple and effective starting point to get a discussion started on this topic if needed.

Have a conversation | Childnet

I hope these resources prove useful to you.

Kind regards,
