Cybertraps for the Young - Paperback

We teach knife and appliance safety in home economics; we teach gun safety as a prerequisite for a hunting license; auto safety in driver’s education; and the dangers of sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancies in sex ed. The Internet’s potential for misuse, whether through a computer or a mobile phone is at least as profound as a chef’s knife, a Camaro, or a .22, but our efforts to educate children about Internet safety are far more sporadic and less thorough.

From the tragic death of Rutgers freshman Tyler Clementi after being a victim of cyberbullying, to illegal downloading on Lime Wire, sexual deviants in chat rooms, easy access to plagiarized term papers, and the dissemination of compromising photos on Facebook, the Internet has become the new Wild West—and a dangerous playground for our children. Drawing on contemporary news reports and compelling legal cases, Lane drives home the seriousness of the civil and criminal penalties children face, while providing an essential framework for parents, teachers, and school administrators to educate children about the importance of responsible technology use.
