Few parents would raise their children without seeking advice from professionals or books at some point in their child's development. Today, the Internet is another resource from which to find help and advice on parenting and childcare, but finding the right information is a daunting task especially those new to surfing the Web. Many parents have the time or inclination to search out the information themselves and will welcome a concise guide such as the Good Web Guide for Parents. Here, the author and researchers have done the hard work for you and put together a very readable and helpful guide to the Web and where to find the right parenting information. UK-specific, Good Web Guide for Parents includes chapters on pregnancy, education and safe surfing as well as many other areas and each one lists recommended sites. Each site has its own rating and description. In no way is the book an exhaustive guide but it does serve as an excellent introduction to what's available and also acts as a technical primer on the Internet itself for those parents new to it. The book comes with a free CD ROM with free Internet access software and hot links to all the sites mentioned in the book. --Paul Fisher
The Internet offers a vast array of information about family-related subjects as well as education and on-line clothes and toy shopping for parents. This guide to websites for all categories related to children is designed to save busy parents precious time on surfing irrelevant areas of the net. The book is divided into subjects. The section on education features websites dedicated to learning, to the National Curriculum, and to homework as well as The Good Schools Guide with their database of well-established research on schools. Other sections include shopping for children's clothes and toys on-line as well as fun sites for children to visit. The book also reviews problematic areas for parents such as special needs children and information on bullying, asthma, dyslexia and the relevant organisations which offer support and access to other parents on-line.
