The problem of disrespect and violence hasn’t been resolved and is growing in a new way online. There are people online who are known for disrespecting women and growing in popularity.

This is not our culture. But, these new social influences can have a significant impact on our young people. So, let’s learn about how we can help our kids reject bad influences online and in the real world, and turn up respect.

We all have the power to end violence.

Let’s stop the disrespect that can lead to violence.

On the internet and social media there are lots of influencers and people who get in our kids’ ears and spread disrespectful and nasty stuff. But you can help our kids tune them out.
  1. Tell your young people they don’t have to watch, like or share everything they see online, especially if it makes them upset or uncomfortable.
  2. Remind them that what they see online is based on what we search for and watch. If they like positive stuff, they’ll see less of the mean stuff.
  3. Encourage your kids to question who is behind what they’re seeing and hearing online.
  4. Learn how to block or report accounts or posts that are mean or disrespectful. This can help your kids see less of that stuff, and might even get it taken down.
Learn more about how you can help our kids drown out the bad influences online at respect.gov.au. And let’s stop the disrespect that can lead to violence at the start. Let’s turn up respect.
