Free eBook for Parents: Growing up Online

As parents, having “the talk” with your kids about their online lives is key.

And while there have always been tons of resources out there to help with the other “talk”… you know, the one about puberty and sex… there is now some awesome stuff coming out to help with the digital talk as well (Common Sense Media is an invaluable resource, and if you haven’t checked it out yet, please do).

The folks at NBC Universal have just released a great new eBook, and it’s available as a free download in all sorts of forms (it took me just two clicks to get it sent to my Kindle).

Just go to their site, download it to your favorite device, and get on it.

Have “the talk” with your kids before they go back to school in the fall.

Oh, and if you’re still avoiding having the other “talk”… here’s a great free resource for that as well.
