“As a researcher of bullying, I really got some great ideas about how to handle this new concept of cyberbullying. If I were Roger and Ebert, I would give this two thumbs up. GREAT resource!”
"Trolley and her associates approach issues of cyber bullying from the very practical, very hands-on level of the cyber kids—around the world and down the block. The overall theme is restoring balance: balance among kids, families, educational professionals, and the technologies themselves. This book provides insights and practical tools to help cyber kids navigate safely and securely through this new technological world. It is a very useful addition to a growing set of resources for both professionals and parents.”
“Whether we like it or not, teens are tightly tied to technology. While most adolescents are responsible in their use of computers, cell phones, and other electronic devices, some are not. In Cyber Kids, Cyber Bullying, Cyber Balance, the authors help bring adults up to speed by pulling together information from a variety of sources to illustrate the varied ways in which adolescents use and misuse technology.
"An easily understood introduction to the wired culture in which the youth of today live and the potential hazards, most notably cyber bullying, associated with online activities. Recommendations for preventing cyber bullying in the first place and intervening in instances that occur are provided in a clear, programmatic way. The cyber bullying stories give an inside look into cyber bullying in a way that simply describing research cannot.
"Trolley and her colleagues draw upon a vast array of resources to get a sense of how children and youth use technology. Packaged with real-life stories, practical examples, and applications, this book is very informative for parents and educators of all types."
“This book is a useful manual filled with concise information, valuable tools, and a proactive model. School districts can develop practices and policies that support cyber balance in our students’ lives. This book makes it easy!”
"This is a practical proactive guide for parents, counselors, and educators. It offers insightful suggestions for helping our children make informed and balanced choices that lead to proper use of technology as well as reducing incidents of cyber bullying and realizing a cyber balanced society."
"The Digital Diet is delightfully informative, sensibly written and worth every minute I spent reading it. It is an excellent tool for learning and teaching."
I will be using this book when students work on a multimedia project on e-safety to help them understand the dangers children (and they) face online. I will also use this with a children in my own family.
