Description

Raising, teaching, and guiding kids is a tough job. They need to be taught basic skills such as how to cross the road, boil water, and read in order to get by in life. To make things tougher, these days, tweens and teens also need to be taught digital life skills.

But in this digital age, how do you protect kids on the internet? Today’s youth have access to more technology and information than any previous generation. That access includes risks in many forms such as cyberbullying, identity theft, and requests for nudity. There’s also some loss of personal connection and community and a potential negative impact on their mental wellness.

While the risks are real, author Angela Crocker advocates for a proactive approach. Rather than fear what will happen online, she advocates empowering youth with digital savvy so they know what to do day to day and where to seek help if dangers pop up in their feeds.

Digital Life Skills for Youth is for parents, guardians, educators, and anyone who wants to be a positive guiding influence on the next generation of digital citizens. If your child or teen needs social skills, study skills, safety skills, or other skills to thrive in their digital life, Crocker offers this book full of real-world solutions, guidance, and practical steps to set up youth for digital success.

The downloadable forms kit includes: • Worksheets from the book • Emoji and texting dictionaries • — And more resources!
