Review 
 The Lorax on DVD
Giveaway




 When we were children I don't think I ever imagined what my grandchildren would be able to do so much from a computer, phone or even that books would be called E -Books and that they would be read online.  Children today have everything available to them online.  Have you talked with your children about what's out there, what they can say to others, what information they should give out and what goes online also goes all over the world, this is the world of the online web?

 If you would like to watch some really interesting clips about what it is like to grow up online and how it affects your children then download the e-book below.  This free e-book gives you situations that you and your children can discuss and read together and talk over.
  How did they feel about the 4 cartoons? Cyberbullying, inappropriate pictures and bad people can easily get to our children.  Take the Quiz also found on this site, with your child.  It can help you see if your child is Internet ready.
  Below is a link to of Tips To Keep Your Child Safe:


 Growing Up Online is a excellent site for children, parents and grandparents to review and watch with their children.  The information it supplies is very important and very useful.  I definitely recommend this site.

  4. I taught my daughter never to talk to strangers. I believe that teaching them young prepares them. Now that she is of age to search the internet she is at a much higher risk because I can not always be there. I have taught her to protect herself from scams. If it looks or sounds to good to be true it probably is a scam. I do not allow my daughter to talk on the teen chat rooms. She does not like the fact that I keep her from those sites but I know that there are grown men pretending to be teens and lures the child to their home or to the child's home. I also control what can be searched on our home computer for added security.
