Helping Young People Learn To Use the Internet Safely and Responsibly

Essential strategies to keep children and teens safe online



As our children and teens race down the onramp to the Information
Superhighway, many parents feel left behind in the dust. News
stories about online sexual predators, child pornography,
cyberbullies, hate groups, gaming addiction, and other dangers that
lurk in the online world make us feel increasingly concerned about
what our children are doing (and with whom) in cyberspace. In
Cyber-Safe Kids, Cyber-Savvy Teens, Internet safety expert Nancy
Willard provides you with need-to-know information about those
online dangers, and she gives you the practical parenting
strategies necessary to help children and teens learn to use the
Internet safely and responsibly.



Parents protect younger children by keeping them in safe places,
teaching them simple safety rules, and paying close attention. As
children grow, we help them gain the knowledge, skills, and values
to make good choices--choices that will keep them safe and show
respect for the rights of others. In Cyber-Safe Kids, Cyber-Savvy
Teens, Willard shows you how those same strategies can be
translated from the real world to the cyberworld, and that you
don't have to learn advanced computer skills to put them into
effect. As you work on these strategies with your child, you will
also discover that remaining engaged with what your children are
doing online is much more valuable than any blocking software you
could buy.



"Willard blends the perspectives of a wise parent and a serious
scholar about issues related to Internet behavior and safety. . . .
Pick up the book, open it to any random page, and you will find on
that page or nearby a wealth of helpful advice and useful
commentary on the cyberreality facing our children and on how to
deal with any of the issues she's identified."

--Dick Thornburgh, J.D., former U.S. Attorney General; chair,
National Academy of Sciences Committee on Youth Pornography and the
Internet



"Simply put, this book is a must-read for anyone--parents,
educators, law enforcement, and policymakers alike--concerned with
the critical issue of children's internet safety and what to do
about it."

--Douglas Levin, senior director of education policy, Cable in the
Classroom
