Raising Kids in a Digital World
Many of you have asked me to post a recent copy of my presentation for parents. Here you go. The first part of the presentation sets the stage for why the Internet is causing such a rift between parents and kids. The next part looks at the economics of the Internet, which explains a lot of why kids are innocent collateral in the war for web traffic. Third, it takes a look at the stuff kids do every day — games, contests, chain mail, and how those can appear to be deceptively safe. Next, it’s on to kids communicating with kids for a look at IM, social networking, and phone messaging. Finally, we look at cyberbullying. There’s a lot in this presentation and you may wind up with a huge headache if you try to consume it at once. Take it bit by bit and remember to pay closest attention to Robin’s five Internet rules.
