ABOUT THIS BOOK

Parenting in the Age of Facebook acknowledges the all-pervasive influence of the World Wide Web on the lives of children, and the quandaries parents find themselves in as a result. How much ‘net-time’ is enough? Are children safe on social media pages? What are the online dangers kids could encounter and how do parents counter these threats? By encouraging practical, proactive strategies—those that model the mindful use of technology, help nurture connections, and support children through healthy Internet-browsing techniques—this book encourages positive parenting in the age of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
