A practical guide for parents and parent educators.

"This book provides sound information for both parents and professionals about the developing needs and experiences of children." - Dr Sue Vardon AO, Former CEO Child Protection and Family Services, South Australia

The memory of sexual abuse in childhood never leaves its victims. Likewise the memory of bullying never goes away. Advances in technology are making our children more vulnerable to both.

Professor Briggs, an expert in child protection, draws on a lifetime of research and practical experience to assist with today's parenting issues.

In 'Smart Parenting for Safer Kids' parents will learn how to:
- Recognise the dangers to children in modern Western society.
- Build stronger kids and help them make smart choices.
- Choose safe, high-quality childcare and child minders.
- Safeguard children in potentially dangerous situations, including bullying, cyberspace and the internet.
- Protect against child sexual abuse.
- Parent through adolescence.
- Choose safe student exchanges.

Professor Briggs, who received an Order of Australia for her work into child protection, tells parents exactly what they should be worried about and how to protect their children from the dangers in the modern world.
