Raising Children in a Digital Age

Twitter, Facebook, blogging, chat rooms, email, the internet and beyond - for most parents, teachers and youth workers, getting to grips with new technology is a bit of a challenge. But keeping children safe is a much bigger one. As technology changes, and young people grasp it faster than the older generations do, it can be a real struggle to know what to do to help, equip and defend. Dr Bex Lewis is an expert in new technology. She knows how it works, what to do and where to go for the latest information. It is rarely possible to keep young people away from new technology, nor is it wise. This book will enable parents, teachers and youth workers to give young people the equipment they need to get the best out of new technology and to avoid the dangers.
