9780143004653: Real Wired Child

Michael Carr-Gregg's latest hard-hitting book for parents opens up the secret world of what their kids are doing online. It reveals the incredibly widespread uses of technology by kids from toddlers to teenagers, and will bring parents up-to-speed with the wired world. He provides easy-to-understand explanations of web surfing, downloading, social networking, blogs, chatrooms and online gaming, and focusses on the devastating phenomenon of cyberbullying. He also considers the possibility of Internet addiction, explores the role of schools and suggests the drafting of a Family Internet Plan. Illustrating the dangers involved in your children's Internet usage with his real-world case studies, Carr-Gregg explains how to minimise the risks without limiting their freedom to learn, explore and communicate online.
