SID TV 2019: Your Choice or Mine - film for parents and carers

We put young people and their parents head-to-head in a game show and asked them questions about consent online. We wanted to find out if parents and their children have the same or differing opinions on a range of online consent topics.

Your Choice or Mine is a great conversation starter that lets parents and young people share views and learn from one another. Safer Internet Day's aim is to inspire conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively. Why not try this at home with your child(ren) and answer the questions below?

This film is intended to be used alongside the corresponding Education Pack for parents and carers

Start conversations at home with some more "Your Choice or Mine" questions:

Do you need to ask before you…

…post a location on where you and family currently are?
…share a selfie of you with your best friend?
…upload a video of a family member doing something silly?
…add a friend to your family group chat?
…invite a new player to join your online gaming team?
…send a link to a friend of something controversial online?
…wish someone ‘happy birthday’ online?
…change the Wi-Fi password at home?
…give an app permission to see your contacts on your device?
…post a photo of your child on the first day of school?
…complete an online survey that asks questions about your family?
…use another family member’s account on a shared device?
…give out your friend’s phone number to a mutual friend?

You can also see the film on our YouTube channel or download by visiting Vimeo.
