A new safe internet guide for parents called “Futureproof Your Kids®” has just been published by author Fiona Lucas. We asked a Mykidstime parent to read it and give us their feedback. Find out what our reviewer thought of the new guide to your children’s safe internet activity:
What the Safe Internet Guide Says it Does
Futureproof Your Kids, written by parent, author and social media educator, Fiona Lucas, tackles issues parents (and carers, guardians and grandparents) are struggling with in the online space and provides advice and suggestions to help them and their children navigate the online environment safely.
There is no reason to fear the online world and technology. We only fear the unknown. Embrace the new connected world so that you can learn how to navigate it.
Well researched and evidence based, author Fiona Lucas has created the 4R’s of Reputation Framework© as a simple and effective guide to managing our online lives. The concepts don’t just apply to children, but to adults as well. Many adults fell into the online space with little guidance themselves. This book allows you to explore the world together with your child.
More than a cybersafety guide, this book is about raising awareness of the need for proactive management of our online reputations (our digital tattoos) and including mindfulness in our actions.
What Our Reviewer Thought
“I found “Futureproof Your Kids®” very enjoyable and easy to read. A truly comprehensive internet safe guide in the areas it covered from social media to apps to other internet usage.
It did make me realise that I need to question what I see online and the value of encouraging and teaching good social etiquette to my kids.
We’ve always had a policy of never befriending anyone other than real friends online but this guide helps you to navigate and learn the value of protecting and respecting your kids’ online reputation too.
It’s got handy tips and action steps as you go through the chapters, so very practical. I would recommend this book to any parent who has children online. It’s priced well too as it will be something you will likely refer back to over and over again” – Jill
