Synopsis

Parents

today have a lot to be concerned about. To add to this list is the worry of what

their children are doing on the Internet. This book highlights some of the

problems, risks and dangers on the Internet. It is not written with the aim of

worrying parents, but to help them communicate better with their children on

Internet safety issues.



It is

possible that our Net-savvy children may have more knowledge, but they may lack

wisdom regarding the use of what they have learned. They may have more

experience, but lack the maturity and discernment to make good decisions. So,

parents continue to play an important role in their children's upbringing. But

this is not an easy role. What parents learned from their parents about

parenting no longer applies in this digital era.

The

authors hope that as parents become better acquainted with such issues as

protection of privacy, Internet pornography, chat rooms, cybersex and sexual

predators, and digital gaming and addiction, they can better converse and

discuss these issues with their children. This way, they can not only offer

guidance, but learn from their children.



What Do I

Say to My Net-Savvy Kids? Internet Safety Issues for Parents begins by arguing

that there is a need to be concerned and that our children can be vulnerable. At

the same time, the book





explains why the

Internet is so important in the lives of our children;





offers general

advice on parenting on the Internet from a developmental perspective that can

help bridge the "digital divide" between Net-savvy kids and clueless parents;





highlights issues

of concern - beginning with the misuse of information and privacy;





focuses on some

risks regarding online relationships and continues to discuss sexuality issues

such as pornography and cybersex;





presents the

attractiveness as well as addictive and aggressive tendencies in digital gaming,

which is an integral part in the lives of many children and teenagers;





concludes with a

discussion on cyber crimes and Internet laws, and summarizes with tips on

Internet parenting; and





gives a list of

resources where parents can turn to for help.

Angeline Khoo did not grow up playing video games. As a baby boomer, she climbed trees and played Five Stones and Monopoly in her childhood. She first met the Super Mario Brothers when her two daughters were growing up in the late 1980s and early 1990s. But it was her research that took her into the world of online games. She has given numerous talks to parents on Internet and gaming issues and has many publications on these subjects. An associate professor and a social psychologist, and the principal investigator of a research team by day, she lectures at the National Institute of Education, Nanyang Technological University, in Singapore. At night, she has many identities, among which are a night elf druid, a gnome mage and a human paladin.
