    This is such a timely book and I couldn’t agree more that sometimes as parents we abdicate too much of our responsibility to others and it’s important to remember that even with a web monitoring service and good kids, parents need to understand the basics of social media if they really want to help their kids. Cyberbullying and other online dangers are just as real as a physical danger, but in the world of social media, many parents aren’t knowledgeable enough to be able to understand, let alone help, should a negative situation arise. And while Facebook is indeed important, there are many other social media sties and parents owe it to themselves and their kids to be social media savvy.
