Book Review:  A book for kids about staying safe online.

Book Review

Nerdy Bird Tweets by Aaron Reynolds is a great book for starting important conversations with children about social media, online friends, being a good friend and online behaviour.

As a parent, we need to start having conversations with our kids about the online world sooner rather than later. Books like this help parents to prepare their child for what they will encounter online. This book provides an opportunity to start talking about the lure of games and social media, and how they have their good points, as well as their bad points.

There are many possible conversations inside this book. You can ask your child how the game works, so that you can work out if there are any potential risks. A great tip from a friend of mine, Cory Peppler from Parenting Digital,

is to actually play the game with your child. So try sitting down with them and say, ‘Hey, how do you play this game?’, and explore what else they can do with it eg how do I make a friend, can I send them secret messages etc

You can chat about friendships. What makes a good friend? Are online friends, good friends? What does it mean when you ave 500 friends?

You can chat about how to behave responsibly and safely online. Work out what your family rules are for being online.
