NEW Book: Outsmarting Your Kids Online

For Moms and Dads, it’s increasingly difficult and stressful to parent. Not only are children more comfortable with technology than adults, they’re also getting better at hiding behind it. As a result, kids are diving into all sorts of dangerous situations online and parents aren’t equipped to save them.

In this book, tech expert Amber Mac and Internet security expert Michael Bazzell provide the ultimate handbook for parenting in the digital world. This book empowers overwhelmed parents to help them make smarter online decisions to protect their kids, including…

  • understanding today’s social media concerns,
  • reporting digital bullies,
  • enabling monitoring solutions,
  • identifying warning signs,
  • considering app risks,
  • learning about tomorrow’s technology trends,
  • and much more.

Outsmarting Your Kids Online (#OYKO) provides parents new and unconventional tools that allow parents to look into their child’s online life in a way never possible before. It identifies dozens of free resources that simplify and automate in-depth searching of your child’s social network activity. While popular sites such as Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook are covered in detail (including techniques that legally access some “hidden” content), the book goes much deeper into the online activity that may be exposing your child to unnecessary risk.
