This book is a must read for parents, grandparents and children 11 years + because then everybody is on the same page…literally. There are 154 pages of information helping you become a confident guardian in a digital revolution. It will empower your child to make choices that protect them.
At the end of parent workshops and professional development sessions I am asked if i have any material to take away that captures my approach to cyber safety.This book is my response. It is based wholly on experience. The stories, with names changed, are real, and in many instances have involved agencies that have contributed to successful outcomes for the child. All of my work in the area of cyber safety is collaborative, and I want to acknowledge the parents, teachers, police officers, health professionals, and above all the brave young people and their families, who have helped increase my knowledge and encouraged me in this work.
