How can you protect your kids if you don't know where they are? Few parents would let their children wander the streets at all hours or meet with strangers, but kids do that and more on the internet without even leaving their bedrooms. Do you know the people your daughter chats with online every night? Is your son being cyberbullied? Have you seen the videos your kids are downloading? Michael Carr-Gregg urges parents to venture into the online world inhabited by their children and get in touch with their day-to-day lives. He explains what kids get up to, provides guidelines for family internet safety and advises how to minimise the risks without limiting your children's freedom to learn, explore and communicate online. The internet has changed parenting forever. Carr-Gregg provides an essential guide to the online world of today's real wired children, from toddlers to teenagers.

Combining case studies with new research, Dr. Nowinski gives parents the information and the tools to work through the transition. Written in a warm and authoritative tone, Nowinski will teach parents to: · Focus on your child's new day-to-day reality · Identify early signs of trouble · Help your child through the separation process and help them develop coping skills that will remain with them through life

If you start talking early enough, kids will listen. FOR MANY PARENTS, the talk is one of the most dreaded rites of passage in the child-raising experience--but it doesn’t have to be. The key is to start early when talking about sex with your child. In Dr. Fred Kaeser’s progressive approach, parents become their child’s first resource for sexual information (instead of ceding control to peers, the school system, or the media) in order to have a lasting and positive influence over their child’s sexual development. As the former director of health in the New York City public schools, there’s nothing Dr. Kaeser hasn’t been asked by kids, or by parents. And he has seen firsthand the results of our increasingly sexualized youth culture, and how it’s making children grow up faster than ever these days. From sexting to cyberbullying, challenges and pressures abound--even for kids in kindergarten. This means that parents must begin laying the groundwork for basic conversations about sex when their child is as young as three years old. Parents then build their discussions on this early foundation, introducing more information at developmentally appropriate ages (for example, talking about puberty with your eight-year-old, and discussing safe sex with your ten-year-old). What Your Child Needs to Know About Sex (and When) goes far beyond the birds and the bees to discuss uncomfortable issues with a winning frankness and empowering attitude. It offers families the tools they need for navigating how and when to have positive dialogues about sexuality and helps parents learn to use everyday teachable moments. Open communication about sex with your children isn’t necessarily easy, but it can be done; this indispensable book will guide you every step of the way.

We no longer live in a world where pornography exists in a sleazy party of town, restricted to adult magazines and videos sold in restricted shops. It is no longer soft pornography that previous generations found in magazines like Penthouse and Playboy. Every child now has access to hard-core pornography of every imaginable variety. Children aren't stumbling onto occasional soft pornography - they are living in a world where extreme hard-core, violent and degrading pornography is easily found. With the internet, pornography has gone from being a sleazy, risky, shameful, and highly private activity, to an open aired, widely available, widely viewed, multi-billion dollar industry. In 1980, children's access to pornography was typically limited to soft-core magazines, used in secrecy. In 2014, children have easy, free 24/7 access on any internet connected smart phone, tablet or computer to extreme hard-core pornography. Every parent needs to understand the reality and dangers of internet pornography.
