The first in the series is Savvy Cyber Kids At Home: The Family Gets A Computer and third in the row is Savvy Cyber Kids At Home: Adventures Beyond The Screen.

The moment bullying is sensed, an appropriate response must go back in order to control it.
The book teaches you in a very interesting and interactive manner on the subject.
In some ways I feel like age six could be young for this type of lesson, but then reality kicks in and I realize this is the perfect time to teach him how to handle himself and situations with the Internet because some if them are applicable to other situations too. We read The Family Gets A Computer, Adventures Beyond The Screen, and the Defeat of the Cyber Bully. We talked about all the details of the books so they were a good opening for these conversations and lessons!
My son is in 1st grade and The Savvy Cyber Kids at Home books are ones he can read! We have read them several times and my son enjoys that the children in the book are pretending to be Super Hero's. The books gave me some good ideas of how to make sure we are not transparent on the Internet and regulate what we do and how long we are on the Internet.
The biggest thing that hit home for me was the book about Defeat of the Cyber Bully. I like how it addresses to tell a grown up that you can trust when you encounter a bully. I do wish the book went about the bully topic a little differently though. My son and I talked about this very serious subject deeper after we read this book. We talked about the line "sticks and stones" because we agreed that words do hurt. We decided we have to be the bigger person to make sure unkind words do not affect us or stay with us!Read more ›
