Staying Safe Online by Louie Stowell

Inside:  A Cybersafety book for tweens and teens that actually talks about pornography and sexting!

About this book

Staying Safe Online by Louie Stowell is a cybersafety book for tweens that also talks about pornography and sexting.

This book is very different to the usual internet safety books, in that it doesn't ignore or 'gloss over' anything to do with sex.

It provides some very frank (even funny) information that is age-appropriate and educational. Information that will help your child to make smart decisions about whether they will send nude pictures (or not) and whether they will choose to watch porn (or not).

I really like this book, and would happily throw away all my other cybersafety books in favour of this one.

So do yourself a favour and get a copy for your family. I can guarantee that it will start some very interesting dinnertime conversations!
