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.
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
Cyberbullying and cyber abuse
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 instead focuses on empowering parents to understand the opportunities provided by the Internet and social media as well as the threats and the ways to mitigate them in an ever changing digital world.
It’s a great supplementary tool to the Family Insights app.
The Parents’ Survival Guide to Children, Technology and the Internet has been endorsed by national and international representatives such as Will Gardner, CEO at Childnet International UK and Professor Donna Cross from The University of Western Australia and Telethon Kids Institute.
It has also been proclaimed, “The best online health and safety book on the market!” by Marsali S. Hancock, CEO & President of EP3 Foundation USA.
