Forget sex, drugs, and rock & roll — today's parents and teachers have to deal with cyberbullying, sexting, internet addiction, and exposure to inappropriate online content. Fortunately, expert researcher Dr. Megan Moreno has written this book as a guide to help you teach your kids about balance and boundaries in their internet and media use and the skills they need to thrive online.
Sex, Drugs 'n Facebook will help you to zero in on the problem — and the solution. Backed by researchers funded by a $2.5 million NIH grant, this guide provides a clear toolkit for teaching our young people how to avoid the dangers of the internet while taking advantage of its full potential.
The book is grounded in the real experiences of young people on the internet. Incorporating the insight of teens and college-age students, each chapter includes real-life case studies and helpful new methods for productive conversations about these situations, in your own home or classroom.
Dr. Moreno gives actionable advice based on the most cutting-edge research in social media and technology use. Respectful of the needs of both children and adults, Sex, Drugs 'n Facebook is the smart guide to raising cybersensible kids.

The book includes "Parents' Toolkits" with conversation starters, discussion guidelines and real-life examples, age-specific recommendations for tailoring advice to pre-teen, teen or college-age children, summaries of recent studies, including take-home points for parents or teachers. Sex, Drugs 'n Facebook will prepare parents to have "The Talk"--not about sex but about cybersafety and appropriate Internet use--and the solution-focused approach will appeal to people who have already experienced some of the pitfalls of unguided Internet use.
