Sexts, Texts and Selfies
Cyber bullying, sexting, gaming addiction, online predators - these terms are all too common for today's parents. Children have greater access to social media than ever before and while they intuitively know how to use the technology, their brains are not yet developed enough to make sensible decisions all the time. Australia's expert cyber cop, Susan McLean, gives parents the best advice on how to keep children safe online: setting boundaries for internet/device usage, who to friend and unfriend, how to deal with nasty Facebook comments, how to address social media issues with your child. She also has the answer for when things go wrong: a sext gone viral, relentless bullying, 'friends' pretending to be someone else. Susan's no-nonsense approach is firm but fair. She deals with issues big and small and her Top 10 Rules for Cyber Safety should be in every parent's survival kit.
