Editorial Reviews

Review

"Online safety is still a basic parenting issue, even if our kids are the 'digital natives.' Dr. O'Keeffe's entertaining and wise insights on the internet, kids, and their changing interests will help you be confident and guide your children to internet safety."  —Marian Merritt, Norton Internet Safety Advocate, Symantec Corporation



"After taking her practice to the Internet in 2005, pediatrician Dr. Gwenn O'Keeffe realized the issue of parenting kids on the Web was fast becoming a recurring topic of interest among her clients and friends. . . . As a result of her research, Dr. O'Keeffe penned the book Cyber Safe . . . with much influence from her own dealings as the mother of two teenage daughters." —www.people.com

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a timely work that covers a good range of important topics with good insights about adults and children. Areas covered include cell phones, texting, email, chat, social networks, gaming and a person's "digital footprint." The editing leaves something to be desired. Much of the initial content is repetitive and not well organized. There's an awful lot of "gosh, things have changed so much!" sprinkled into every section for the first few chapters. In the section on effective web searching, and others, at the point where you expect some focused examples, the text veers off to web history for a while and back for just a little more on the topic at hand, never getting to much depth. There are a few spelling and plurality errors, and somewhat jarring informalities (e.g. saying "2 colleagues" or "the oldest of 3" instead of "two" and "three." Generally the later sections are more focused and detailed. Looking past these issues, the book should be a good introduction for most people to the 'state of the web' as it relates to children, at least for a few years.

Thank you, Dr. Gwenn, for providing us with an incredibly timely and helpful guide to successful parenting in the twenty-first century. This electronic media guidebook presents a balanced and informative journey through many modern avenues of connection, from cell phones and the internet, to Google and gaming. Dr. Gwenn skillfully crafts a tapestry of care by also weaving in helpful information about families, child development, the latest information about brain and cognitive growth, and psychosocial tidbits of all ages. Most importantly, it also presents ways for intelligent parents to create and maintain healthy boundaries with the outside world regardless of the age of your child or the place that your family finds itself in the family life cycle. This will hopefully promote ways for many families to select the personal strategies of media consumption that work for them and choose the family life that they want to live. I highly recommend this well-reasearched and informative guide to families as well as professional that work with them.
