Editorial Reviews

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.
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.
