Description

Introduce children to the basics of online safety in a story-based, conversational style.

Using real-world examples set within the context of a child who is using the internet for the first time and watching an older sibling interact with social media, Dr. Roberts takes readers through several common scenarios around parental supervision, online bullying and anonymity. She also includes examples of people who use the internet to make the world a better place. On the Internet addresses common safety concerns in a child-centered way and offers easy-to-understand rationales for why it's important to maintain boundaries online just as in real life.
The World Around Us series introduces children to complex cultural, social and environmental issues that they may encounter outside their homes, in an accessible way. Sidebars offer further reading for older children or care providers who have bigger questions. For younger children just starting to make these observations, the simple question-and-answer format of the main text will provide a foundation of knowledge on the subject matter.
