Is your child safe online? Do you know what information they access on a daily basis? The chances are that you are like most parents and the answer is no or, at best, I'm not sure.

These days, our kids are more internet-savvy than we are; they know how to unblock privacy settings or get around simple parental controls. Yet more and more frequently there are stories in the news about children being victims of internet crime; whether through Facebook party invites, cyber-bullying or, worse, child grooming.

But what can we do about it?
As parents, we have a duty to understand the different media our children use and put in place boundaries and guidelines to protect them. Is Your Child Safe Online? has the practical advice you need to minimise the risk and ensure your child is protected today; whilst still letting them do their homework.

Covering all forms of new media - iPhones, apps, iPads, twitter, gaming online - as well as social networking sites Is Your Child Safe Online? keeps you informed of the dangers and reassures with simple, straightforward advice. It arms you with practical methods to make sure your child is safe.

All your questions answered;
Do children get any guidelines at school on internet use?
How do children use social networks, chatrooms, instant messaging and blogs?
How do I control what my children look at online, or what information they give out? 
What are the effects of time spent online on mental health and social life?
How do I educate my children on how they can protect themselves against cyber-bullying and grooming?
Give yourself peace of mind with Is Your Child Safe Online?; the book that every careful parent should own.

The facts speak for themselves: In the last three years, the number of children belonging to a virtual world has increased from 8 million to 20 million. One in five children aged five to seven are accessing the internet without parental supervision. Make sure YOUR child is safe online.
