This second edition (2009) of Internet Safety 101 contains a workbook and resource guide, a DVD, a booklet, and other resources designed to empower parents to protect their children from online pornography and predators who use the Internet as a tool for perpetrating emotional and sexual abuse of young internet users.
The manual, coupled with a DVD that parallels the manual’s content, combines the most critical Internet safety information with testimony, advice, and information from leading experts who provide the guidance parents, educators, and guardians need to ensure that children and youth use the Internet in ways that will prevent their contact with pornographic material and predators seeking young victims. The booklet which is intended to be used with the workbook and the DVD, contains Internet safety guidelines; a checklist; a parent’s pledge to implement the tools of the kit; a parent “buddy” check; a youth pledge of awareness of and commitment to safety guidelines for the use of the Internet; age-based safety guidelines for using the Internet; and a glossary of terms and acronyms. Appended resource materials point parents to the best Web sites and organizational resources for specific, topical, and child-focused solutions for ensuring children's safety while using the Internet.
