The youth of the world today have grown up using technology and the Internet. Kids as young as 4 and 5 years old are learning how to get online and search for information or videos. The ability to go online and connect with people and information from all across the globe is an awesome power to have. Unfortunately, that power is not always used for good. There are countless people out there with the intent of using the Internet to cause harm or steal your personal information. You probably heard of computer viruses and some other basic threats, but there are other threats to your safety and well-being that are a little less obvious, especially to today's youth who are so engrossed in the Internet that they are sometimes naive to the dangers lurking in the shadows of cyberspace. Internet Safety for Kids and Young Adults delves into a number of important safety issues that face kids and teens while working and playing on the Internet. Topics include Cyber-bullying, Texting and Sexting, Internet Addictions, Sexual and Online Predators, Identity Theft, Online Scams, Viruses and Spyware, Mobile Device Security, Online Reputation and even Copyright and Plagiarism. These topics are very important to anyone who uses the Internet, however this book is written to speak directly to the kids themselves. There are tons of books out there to teach parents how to talk to their kids about the importance of staying safe online, but very few that are geared towards the kids themselves. This book changes that. It is written in straight-forward language and gets right to the point without sugar coating the details.

The Internet has changed the way we access the world. This is especially true for kids, who soak up new technologies like eager little sponges. They have access to an enormous array of material, including educational links, sports info, chat roomsâ€"and, unfortunately, pornography. But we must approach our need to protect children with care to avoid placing unnecessary restrictions on the many positive features of the Internet. Youth, Pornography, and the Internet examines approaches to protecting children and teens from Internet pornography, threats from sexual predators operating on-line, and other inappropriate material on the Internet. The National Research Council’s Computer Science and Telecommunications Board explores a number of fundamental questions: Who defines what is inappropriate material? Do we control Internet access by a 17-year-old in the same manner as for a 7-year-old? What is the role of technology and policy in solving such a problem in the context of family, community, and society? The book discusses social and educational strategies, technological tools, and policy options for how to teach children to make safe and appropriate decisions about what they see and experience on the Internet. It includes lessons learned from case studies of community efforts to intervene in kids’ exposure to Internet porn. Providing a foundation for informed debate, this very timely and relevant book will be a must-read for a variety of audiences.

Toddlers on tablets. Pre-teens on Tumblr. Thanks to a variety of factors—from tech companies hungry for new audiences, to school administrations bent on making education digital, to a culture that promotes everyone as the star of their own reality shows—technology is irrevocably a part of childhood, and parents are struggling to keep up. What should be allowed? What should be denied? And, given the ubiquity of technology and its inherent usefulness, what do sensible boundaries even look like? A noted columnist and mother of three, Naomi Schaefer Riley fully understands the seductive nature of screens. For example, an afternoon of finger painting equals enormous cleanup of both house and hands. But an afternoon of iPad games? Just a swipe and a charger. Or what about car rides around town? Always having toys and books on hand isn’t a given, but your game-loaded smart phone is. Riley draws us into her story and then walks us through the research on technology’s encroachment into each stage of childhood. She then offers “tough mommy tips”: realistic, practical, applicable advice for parents who recognize that unlimited technology access is a problem, but who don’t know where to start in taking back control. These tips cover everything from placating an antsy toddler at your local favorite restaurant to best practices for keeping your teens safe from unsavory sites. Any parent knows the effects of screens on their distracted, cranky, sedentary, and incessantly anxious-about-what-might-be-going-on-without-them kids. Naomi Schaefer Riley brings her experience, research, and no-nonsense candor to help parents prevent the children from falling under the destructive spell of technology.
