As a relatively cyber savvy parent I have made every effort to ensure my teenage daughter is educated about the pitfalls of online communication. We discussed the issues regarding privacy, the dangers of online predators, viruses, and many of the other traps that Lane outlines in this book. Initially we monitored her use of her mobile phone, computer and the internet but as she grew older it was more difficult to insist on access as she naturally became more independent and electronic communicat ...more

I pride myself on being involved with a website that is exceptionally well run. It’s a family friendly site and, frankly, has some of the smartest people on the internet as members.

A bit dense in places, and sure to be outdated in many ways within a few years, Lane's book is an important twist on parenting books on technology. Rather than focus on the child as victim, Lane gives valuable insight into how kids can be, for lack of a better word, perpetrators as much as victims.

Lane gives concrete advice on how to instill values for a cyber age, and he is not shy about telling parents how they need to play an active role in making sure kids live up to those values.
