Internet Safety and Your Family

New Internet Safety Guide Identifies
How Adults May Unknowingly Put Families at Risk

Worried about what your kids are doing online? Take a look at what you, youth group leaders, school newsletter editors and your kids' friends have posted on web sites, blogs, social networking sites and online forums. You may find that there's enough information about your family online to make you all vulnerable to cyber bullying, spoofing, stalking or identity theft.

Parenting Press's new "Internet Safety and Your Family: How to protect kids and adults from electronic bullying, cyber crime, identity theft and addictions" (1884734944, $9.95) is a compact guide that spells out what parents need to know even before kids touch a keyboard. It shows how easily a predator can combine public information in phone directories, legal records and newspapers' online editions, with what you, your friends or your employers have uploaded to photo albums, web sites, professional networking sites---and what you've commented on blogs.

Available at www.parentingpress.com as a downloadable or at Amazon.com as a traditional bound book, "Internet Safety and Your Family" was written by Linda Carlson, a former investigative reporter, author of eleven other books, and mother of two.
