But Here’s What You Might Not Know
You don’t need to listen to all the fear-mongering and hysteria about ‘banning’ apps or devices or trying harder to ‘control’ your child.
The truth is, parents CAN let their kids use the internet to do the things they enjoy, AND keep them safe at the same time — and the Safe On Social Parents Toolkit can show you how.
With the Safe On Social Parents Toolkit in your back pocket, you won’t need to be anxious about what your child is doing, or scared that they’re hiding things from you.
- You’ll know the apps they’re using.
- You’ll know the real dangers they face.
- You’ll know the steps to take to keep them safe.
And — which is your best defence of all — you’ll know how to talk to them about what’s going on.
Because honestly, kids are always one step ahead of you, and they’ll find a way around it.
So what does work? Introducing...
The Complete A-Z Course for keeping kids safe online.
Go from late nights spent worrying about your child online to transforming social media into a positive, enriching, and worry-free experience for both you AND your child.
Over the past five years, Kirra Pendergast has taught online safety to more than 400,000 school kids (and their parents) and has spent 20+ years working in cybersecurity. We’ve taken everything she’s learned as a leading online safety expert and created The Safe On Social Parents Toolkit: a digital ‘survival kit’ of everything parents need to know to keep their kids safe on social media.

You won’t have to devote hours to find what you need. Everything is divided up into dozens of neatly categorised, bite-sized videos you can watch in a few minutes, exactly when you need them.
Our simple step-by-step resources offer info in non-techy language that’s easy to understand. You'll also learn the apps your child is using and the dangers they face, but more importantly, you'll know the steps to take to keep them safe.
The end result is the confidence you need to know you can safely guide your child through social media.
The Safe On Social Parents Toolkit is the first course of its kind that won’t recommend ‘limiting screen time’ or expensive software solutions.
We live in a digital world now and our kids are going to need to use social media, apps, and tech platforms as they grow up. So just ‘controlling’ and ‘blocking’ can’t be the only answer.
Ultimately, you want to keep your kids safe without depriving them of the things they enjoy or letting them have fun with their friends.
The online world changes fast so we are constantly updating the toolkit — but here’s a taste of what’s inside right now:
- ‘Cheat sheets’ that break down exactly what you need to know about any app or service, with screenshots and detailed instructions for anything you need to do.
- Simple but detailed explanations of all the topics that matter to parents right now — discover what you need to know about Instagram, pornography, Snapchat, Facebook, sexting, Tiktok, Tellonym, cyberbullying, Omegle, and many more you’ve probably never heard about (but your kids have).
- Exclusive insights from actual teenagers revealing how kids are using apps — including the things most kids will never tell parents.
- Breakdowns of ‘terms and conditions’ and jargon from the apps your kids use, with highlights on the parts you need to know.
- Live alerts to let you know when a new service is doing the rounds with kids — so you can stay one step ahead of them.
And to make sure you're supported every step of the way, you'll also get access to this exclusive bonus:
You get private Q&A email access to Kirra and our team of experts, standing by to help answer your toughest questions quickly and accurately.
That’s right. As part of the Safe On Social Parents Toolkit, you get exclusive access to send through questions about your situation, and someone from our team of experts will personally answer you!
- You didn’t have to waste any time trying to stay up to date with online trends and apps.
- You could enjoy the peace of mind of knowing what your child is doing online and feel confident about talking to them about it.
- You could transform social media into a positive, enriching, and worry-free experience for both you AND your child.
That’s what we aim to achieve with The Safe On Social Parents Toolkit.
“The Toolkit saved me HOURS of googling -and stress! Now when I hear about a new App or trend I just check the Toolkit and, yep, there it is.”
“You not only opened my eyes up to how I can keep my kids safe, you helped keep me safe too. More importantly, your style helped me create a safe conversation with my kids about what we'll do moving forward rather than disconnecting the electricity and beginning to churn our own butter!!!”
“Kirra gave examples, evidence and clear explanations for exactly why some sites and some practices are dangerous, rather than just telling [you] 'this site is really dangerous — be afraid'.”
“After COVID hit and my daughter's learning moved online, I really wanted to understand how I could help her stay safer while she was talking to friends and navigating the internet. Easy to use and with heaps of information, the Parents Toolkit helped me do just that! The content is easy to understand and comes with practical information that can be implemented straight away. I highly recommend the Parents Toolkit to all parents.”
“Deep, confronting and thought-provoking… couldn’t recommend Kirra highly enough. ”
“Easy to access, even easier to understand. The short video summaries and cheat sheets save me so much time. As a parent of two teens I feel like I’ve got the information I need, without all the hysteria and hand-wringing that normally comes with online safety content.”

This program is for you if:
- You are sick of all the fear-mongering and hysteria about ‘banning’ apps or devices or trying harder to ‘control’ your child.
- You want your kids to use the internet to do the things they enjoy, and keep them safe at the same time.
- You feel overwhelmed on where to start or what information is actually reliable
- You want to be able to have productive, honest conversations with your child about social media and their online activity.
This program is not for you if:
- You are looking for a magic software solution that instantly makes social media “disappear” from your child’s life — i.e. you’ll still have to be very involved as the “parent” and do the work of building a relationship with your child.
- You are already incredibly tech-savvy, work in cybersecurity, and are up to date with every online trend, law, and app from ‘Among Us’ to ‘Yubo’ and everything in between.
- Your kids are all 18+, although if you have Grandchildren under 18 welcome back to the rollercoaster - we’re here to help.

I struggle with time as a busy parent, how long will it take to go through this material?

If an urgent situation arises with my child and I don’t have time to go through the toolkit information, can I reach out to someone for help?
Yes, your access includes our email Q&A service — your questions will be personally answered by Kirra Pendergast and her team of cyber safety experts.
How often is the toolkit updated? I feel like things move so quickly, I want to make sure I have the most up-to-date information.
The online world is constantly changing. That’s why your access includes live alerts to let you know when a new service is doing the rounds with kids — so you can stay one step ahead of them. The core toolkit materials are constantly reviewed and updated as apps, technology, and user behaviours change.

I live outside Australia, can I still access the toolkit and will it be relevant for me?
Absolutely - yes and yes. Like much of online life, the information is relevant no matter where you are in the world as many of the trends and behaviours are the same. Occasionally we reference laws, but these are flagged as Australian laws. Please refer to your local laws if accessing outside of Australia.
I’m a teacher, will this be relevant for me?
Great question, we have a product designed specifically for educators. The Safe On Social Schools Toolkit is a comprehensive, year-round training program to help make online safety education accessible, simple to understand and easy to teach. Please note that the Safe On Social Parents toolkit is designed for parents and is not suitable for use in institutions. If you’d like to find out more about using the Schools Toolkit in your school please reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org
Is this course eSafety certified?
Our cyber expert Kirra Pendergast is a trusted eSafety provider.
I have a very young child, is this toolkit still relevant for me? At what age does online safety become a big concern?
The toolkit is designed with practical tips for parents with children 4-18, but it’s never too early to educate yourself about online safety.
One of the hardest things for me is talking to my child about sensitive topics, is there guidance around how to have these conversations?
Yes. We believe the best defence of all is knowing how to talk to them about what’s going on.
Will I need to be using all of the apps to understand how they work? I'm not on TikTok... Do I need to be?
No way. In fact we wouldn’t want you (or your kids) using a lot of the apps we’ll cover. We’ve done the research, so you don’t have to. Kirra will walk you through simple but detailed explanations of all the apps and online topics that matter to parents right now — discover what you need to know about Instagram, pornography, Snapchat, Facebook, sexting, Tiktok, Tellonym, cyberbullying, Omegle, and many more you’ve probably never heard about (but your kids have).
