Protect your children from cyber crime, sexting, cyber bullying, phishing, ghosting, grooming, nude selfies, and other internet dangers. You can't shield your kids from the risks if you don't know what they are.
Kids spend hours online, confidently exploring the best the internet has to offer - but what about the risks? Who are they talking to on social media? How do you educate them about their digital footprint and and protect them from trolls, bullies, stalkers, and frenemies? They may be tech-savvy but not worldly-wise, so can you set ground rules? And if they see you as a tech-dinosaur, how do you encourage them to come to you if they are in difficulty, and what action should you take to prevent, minimise, or resolve the damage?
Packed with real-life scenarios, practical advice, and action plans in non-techspeak, Parent Alert is your go-to guide for one of the greatest dangers facing children today.
