Safe Text – Protecting Your Teen from the Dangers of Texting (Protecting Teens from the Dangers of Technology and the Internet
This is the first book in a series to help parents protect their teens from the dangers of technology and the Internet. Not only does the book describe the dangers and legal implications of texting, but also gives tools and information how to dialog with teens about the dangers of texting.
This is a very practical book. Also by May, there will be a project to go with the book on Diane’s website that is based on best practices in education to help teens understand the dangers and how to deal with them. This project will include lesson plans for teachers and parents who home school their teens based on national educational standards and learning targets.
I don’t have teens. My daughters are five and seven but I worry. I didn’t have to texting when I was a teenager (yes I am aging myself here). I see kids texting while driving and I hear about kids sexting on the news. This book got more in depth about what is exactly going on. It’s disturbing. Kids sending each other nude pictures and kids getting bullied!
Did you know that 24% of all fatal car accidents of teens were due to cell phone usage? Did you know you could be held legally liable for your teens actions regarding texting? Ms.Griffin offers legal advice and this book is full of excellent resources! She offers a lot of great advice If you have teens or preteens I highly suggest you pick this up! I am glad I have this book for when my girls (who are already begging me for phones!) for when they get older.
The author is offering up a Kindle Fire and 2 $50 Amazon Gift Certificates.
