Shawn Edgington's book is a must-have for parents in this digital age. While there are many benefits to using social media, there are also very real potential dangers, such as online predators, cyberbullying, identity theft, and more. The Parent's Guide to Texting, Facebook, and Social Media helps parents equip their children to protect themselves and their personal information. --Spencer Christian, weather anchor for ABC7 News (San Francisco) and co-host of View from the Bay, former weather anchor of Good Morning America
Teens face a number of significant challenges when using technology and parents are charged with educating their children about the safe and responsible use of a variety of digital devices and online environments. The Parent's Guide equips parents with the tools and resources they need to encourage the appropriate use of computers and cell phones. --Justin Patchin, PhD, co-director of the Cyberbullying Research Center, co-author of Bullying Beyond the Schoolyard: Preventing and Responding to Cyberbullying --Tina Meier, mother and founder of The Megan Meier Foundation
I believe it is so important for books just like The Parent's Guide to Texting, Facebook, and Social Media to be available to help educate and bring parents up to speed on the world that our children live in today. --Tina Meier, mother and founder of The Megan Meier Foundation
