Hot Off the Press
As parents, what challenges or opportunities do you face regarding digital technologies and how they have become pervasive in the life of your family?
Today, parents are often unaware of how the internet, social media and mobile devices are impacting the digital wellbeing of their children.
90% of parents whose children are targeted by cyberbullying are unaware it is happening.
60% of parents do not monitor their children’s online activities.
But, we can do better than that!
This is why we wrote The Parents’ Survival Guide to Children, Technology and the Internet. We believe that the most effective tools for keeping children safe online are conversations that promote your family values and by having an active engagement with the digital technologies that your children find so compelling.
About The Book
When writing this book, we consolidated information, research and advice from nearly 300 leading international resources, including some of the world’s best technologists, child psychologists and online safety experts.
This process enabled us to provide parents with the practical skills they need to safely navigate new digital landscapes with their children by educating them on topics such as:
- Monitoring screen time in the age of distraction
- Internet addiction
- Sleep deprivation
- Parental controls
- Cyberbullying and cyber abuse
- Video games
- Social media
- Online grooming, and
- Offensive and illegal content.
What makes this book distinctive, however, is that it doesn’t focus specifically on today’s latest ‘scary app’ or video-game sensation — for with modern technology, we know one thing’s for sure: there’s always going to be a new app.
This book contains extensive research, insights, and data from leading resources and experts throughout the world. We can’t promise that this book will serve as a DIY manual for risk-proofing your child, but we can guarantee that it will provide you with the information and awareness that you need in order to tackle online challenges together.
