Growing Up Online

Growing Up Online is an award-winning column that helps parents understand what kids are doing at the computer or, increasingly, on their cell phones. It grows from Carolyn's experience as mother to three cyber-savvy kids, her professional experience as a Contributing Editor for Family PC and her educational experience earning a M.A. in ethics. Each column brings busy parents up to speed so they can nurture their children's interest in technology while setting appropriate limits that will help them be as safe and responsible online as they are in the real world.
