Book Review: The Surfing Penguin by Kim Maslin is a collection of short stories that will help parents with talking to kids about how to use the internet safely.
A short overview of this book
The Surfing Penguin by Kim Maslin is a collection of 4 short stories, with each story teaching a different lesson about viewing inappropriate content, cyberbullying, trolling and location services.
All really important conversations that we need to have with our children, to ensure they stay safe but also use the internet in a responsible way.
The stories are short and to the point with reflection questions after each story. These are very helpful for continuing the conversation and talking about how the story fits into your family life.
What I like about this book, is that each story focuses on one lesson. Which means that parents can focus on having an in-depth conversation around the one topic. Instead of talking superficially about many topics.
You can learn more on this page, about how to talk to kids about sex education.
