Review quote

"Bex is clearly passionate about helping people engage with the digital world in a positive way, and... sets out some great ways to achieve this." -- Reg Bailey CBE, Chief Executive of Mothers' Union "A refreshingly direct and thoughtful guide for parents." -- Professor Sonia Livingstone OBE, London School of Economics, author of Children and the Internet This book is certainly unique in that it is not just the spouting of technologies but the revealing of how ordinary folks see and perceive technologies but the revealing of how ordinary folks see and perceive technologies. I appreciate the way Lewis weaves in the various snippets of her survey and study to give us a very down to earth picture of the technological landscape at a very human level. -- Conrade Yap Netgalley This book is well written and informative. A definitive guide to avoid your kids dealing with the nastier side of the internet (grooming, cyberbullying, internet addiction). -- Kerry Marsh Netgalley 'This is a book which every family with young children can benefit from.' The Irish Catholic 'This book is the go-to guide for all our digital worries.' -- Lloyd Kinsley Childrensworkshow more
