"Whether we like it or not, teens are tightly tied to technology. While most adolescents are responsible in their use of computers, cell phones, and other electronic devices, some are not. In Cyber Kids, Cyber Bullying, Cyber Balance, the authors help bring adults up to speed by pulling together information from a variety of sources to illustrate the varied ways in which adolescents use and misuse technology. The book provides parents, teachers, and other youth-serving adults with sensible strategies to help bring balance back to the technology utilization of the children they supervise. The 'cyber story' features interspersed throughout the text help paint a clear picture of the role of technology in the lives of youth using real-life stories. Readers are sure to learn something about the positive and not-so-positive ways adolescents utilize technology." -- Justin Patchin, Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire
