Net Cetera: Chatting with Kids About Being Online

The internet offers a world of opportunities to people of all ages, such as: posting video from mobile devices, building online profiles, creating alter egos in the form of online avatars, connecting with friends they don’t see regularly, sending photos and broadcasting what they’re doing to hundreds of people. Although, the way we use the internet can be very fulfilling, it also comes with certain risk to the uninformed and uneducated (the children of today’s world). Some of these risks include inappropriate conduct, content and contact.

Starting when your children are young they are observing your use of today’s technology. And your children are very interested in just what is going on in that phone you’re looking at or the computer that they are not allowed to touch.

This book offers great advice for parents of children of all different ages. By the time you child is a young teen he or she will more than likely be adept at finding information online, but they still will still need your guidance to help them understand which sources are trustworthy. Even the most tech-savvy kids need to understand that not everything they see on the internet is true, that people on the internet may not be who they appear to be, and that information or images they share can be seen far and wide.

Furthermore, this book touches bases on chat rooms, instant messaging, video calling and texting, and gives parents a brighter idea on how to communicate with their child about what they want to accomplish on the internet and why the child wants to explore the internet.
