From helping children deal with cyberbullying to identifying control systems for monitoring their online activities, this guide steers parents through the often intimidating digital landscape where young children can be plugged in 24/7. In addition to informing about the latest trends in technology—social-networking sites such as Facebook and MySpace, gaming systems, mp3 players, and cell phones—this handbook empowers parents to embrace the new innovations and help children get the most out of technology in a safe, well-informed manner. Suggestions for setting boundaries by age group, a cyber dictionary, sample family internet-safety pledges, and listings of additional resources are also included.
