Hi! I was looking for something worthwhile to make my first posting in my communities... Found it! :-)
I recently read The Five Dangerous Trends Concerning Kids, Technology, and the Internet by Denise Pellow. I was shocked at some of the things kids are doing now with their phones, game consoles, and computers. Things like sexting, which I'm still amazed about. It's such a different world than when we were kids and even though I consider myself relatively tech savvy, I know there are so many things going on in the tech and online realms that I am naive about. I recommend every mom check into this author's website: www.kidsbesafeonline.com. I found info about kid safe search engines, etc that were even helpful with my young child.
Anyway, hope this info is helpful for someone. I'd love to hear your stories or get your opinion on this book and site. I'm fascinated by these topics.
