This is Aoife. She is part of our online safety band and she plays the keyboard. Although she loves spending time online, she can sometimes get overwhelmed or anxious after being on the internet. Sometimes it is not her fault, she just loses track of time when she is playing games, but then she can get a headache. You’ll see with that symbol sometimes the internet can make you happy and sometimes it can make you sad. We just need to find the right balance. This lesson is about trying to help Aoife to stay safe and well online. Hopefully you can advise her on how and where to ask for help and to spot the signs when things are getting too much online.
