Minors Safety



CoreLife Education online courses work best when they are used in partnership with responsible teens, parents, and adults. The internet can contribute greatly to our learning experiences, but it is also full of dangers for children and youth.  It is imperative that responsible parents and adults monitor their learners during their time online. Thank you for your corporation.
Here are some* key principles will help make things safer for all ages:
  • Always keep lines of communication with your children open
  • Create a list of Internet rules together with your kids
  • Set parental controls at the age-appropriate levels and use filtering and monitoring tools as a complement–not a replacement–for parental supervision.
  • Supervise all Internet-enabled devices and keep computers in a public area of the home.
  • Discuss to your kids about healthy sexuality in the event they encounter sexually explicit online pornography at home, school, a friend’s house, the library or on their mobile device.
  • Encourage your kids to come to you and tell you if they encounter anything online that makes them feel uncomfortable or threatened. (Stay calm and don’t blame them; otherwise, they won’t turn to you in the future for help when they need it.)
  • Teach your child not to interact with people they don’t know offline, because online predators or cyberbullies can disguise themselves.
  • Frequently check the history file on your computer to see which sites your child has accessed.
  • Teach your child to treat others as they would wish to be treated. 

*In addition to these tips there are tons of Internet-safety websites that provide expert tips and support to help us keep our learners safe while they are online.

Children under 13

You must be at least 13 to use CoreLife Education, so if you are 12 or younger, please do not sign up for an account yourself, instead a parent or guardian must register an account for themselves, in their name, and then learn alongside you until you are old enough for your own account.

Children 13 and over

At Corelife education we understand that collaboratively learning with others is a great way to learn, so  we encourage learning through conversation. As with any online environment where you can communicate to other people, it’s important to stay safe and be aware of potential dangers, especially if you’re under 18.

Here are some of our top safety and privacy tips:

  •  We are a Cyberbullying free zone. Here everyone has a right to feel safe and highly valued, NO LESS IS PERMITTED.
  • Be kind online. It’s OK to disagree, but don’t be disagreeable.
  • Know how to report abuse or block anyone who bothers you and others on social media.
  • Be cautious about sarcasm and humor. Something that may be funny in person, could be misinterpreted online.
  • Never share contact details (such as email address, telephone number or Snapchat username) with another user – even if they ask you for them, or they’re an educator.
  • Never share your exact location, whether in comments or on your profile – just your country will do.
  • Be careful not to reveal other personal information about yourself and people you know, such as names of family members, teachers, and friends.
  • Help our online community by looking out for and reporting anything you think might not be safe. CoreLife Education moderators can help by hiding comments that contain personal details once you have reported them.

What to do if you’re worried


If you think you’ve made a mistake in a comment and think you might have revealed something you shouldn’t, you can go back and edit your comment or profile at any time.

If you see anything in a comment or profile that concerns you on our site, you can report it to us.

You can also click the contact button at the to of any page in a course, or email us for help if you’re worried about someone’s behaviour.

If you think someone continues to keep asking questions about where you live or your family members, or they ask for your contact details:

  1. Do not reply to them
  2. Press the flag button and report the comment for ‘suspected grooming’ (don’t worry, the person won’t know you reported it)
  3. Contact us providing as much information as you can

If someone is being creepy elsewhere online please tell a responsible parent, adult, or older sibling right away.
