Overview

As a parent, do you ever wonder how you can possibly keep up with all the new technologies your children take for granted? Cell phones, online games, instant messaging, social networking, and other technologies have all become so important in the daily lives of young people, and they seem to take them up at younger and younger ages all the time. The kids view this new digital culture as a normal way of life, even though as parents you may feel overwhelmed by all the unfamiliar challenges. Cyberbullies, stalkers, identity theft, intellectual property theft—it’s hard to know just what you can do to confront the risks.

You want your children to enjoy all the benefits a technological society has to offer, but at the same time, you want them to stay safe and act as responsible members of society. Raising a Digital Child is your guide. Inside, you will learn about many of the newest and most popular technologies, in parent-friendly language, along with discussions of the risks each might harbor and the types of behaviors that every child should learn in order to become a good citizen in this new digital world.

Editorial Reviews

Sarah Pinnix
This book was very different than most 'how to' guides, which merely tell you what to do. I love how [Ribble] went so much into the 'Why,' and the larger questions to apply to different situations.
Choice Magazine
A great deal of information is presented in an easily accessible form, and the advice is clear and well paced.
Book News
This guide helps parents to become more aware of the digital technologies their children encounter, potential problems and risks, and ways to reduce their chances of running into trouble.
