Child & Teen Safety on the Internet

This is essential reading for any librarian working with children, teens, and their parents. "11 Steps to Online Parental Supervision of Your Children" is a commonsense guide to and rationale of participating in your kids' online lives. I receive many questions from parents, often whispered to me while their teens & tweens are browsing the stacks: "I know my daughter's on MySpace, but I don't want to pry." "My son is 12 and wants a blog -- is he too young?" "My kids are constantly IMing and I'm not too sure about some of their friends -- what can I do about it?" I am planning to offer a workshop on this topic for parents at my library this winter, and I will be using Vicki Davis's excellent post as the basis for it. Via the ever-useful Lifehacker.
