Reviews - What do our customers think?
An Important   Feb 5, 2007
Author Jason Illian says that he is passionate about tackling the MySpace(R) phenomenon because he has seen the emotional damage teenagers suffer when they have no guidance, direction, or love in their lives. He points out that the battle for their souls has become more vicious than ever, and parents must equip their children and themselves through knowledge and participation.

Children spend much of their time in a parallel universe called the [...] such as [...] are the soda shops of today with over 100 million people dropping by. Many of these connections are dangerous. No matter what age your child, it is not too early or too late to understand the workings of MySpace.com and other online environments.

Jason Illian gives examples of different approaches for monitoring the use of the computer such as establishing "zero expectations of privacy." He suggests software that tracks usage and can be programmed to shut the computer down at an assigned time of day.

Although he does not advocate for use of the [...] website, he details the security efforts of the company. With patience a parent can see their child from the inside out by observing what they write, what pictures they post, what friends they meet, who stops by their website, and what groups they participate in. He cautions you to take the time to investigate and try to understand the workings of this environment before you risk losing a son or daughter to those who make it their mission to lure your vulnerable child to destruction. If you decide to allow your child to continue using an account with MySpace.com, this book will also provide you with the skills to make their activities as safe and private as possible.

Christian or not--you must believe that you have a duty to your child. This duty entails supervision on the Internet. This book enables you to quickly get up to speed in becoming an expert at protecting your son or daughter from the risks involved with online communication. This book is not an option; it is a necessary tool for every parent--RIGHT NOW!

Armchair Interviews says: This book removes any possible "ignorance" when it comes to children on the Internet--for parents or grandparents.
