Charlotte, NC (WiredPRNews.com) In a first of its kind, kid entrepreneurs Joshua Swauger (age 10) and Zachary Swauger (age13) have released their first book “Kid2Kid, Keepin’ It Safe Online”. The book aims to help educate kids about online safety and helps parents better understand the issue facing today’s technologically savvy kids.
It probably isn’t a stretch that the brothers have co-authored a children’s book that provides valuable lessons since they have learned a great deal about online safety while building their online social network for kids, Jackie Fame.
“Kid2Kid, Keepin It Safe Online,” is intended for ages six to thirteen and is easy for children and parents to read together. The authors intend not only to teach kids about online safety, but they also give kid-to-kid advice on other important issues such as careful texting and living a healthy life outside of technology.
The twenty easy-to-read chapters cover topics including Safety, Privacy, Protecting Passwords, Chat Rooms, Texting Pictures and Videos, Cyberbullying, Plagiarizing and Online Shopping. The topics are aimed at helping kids understand the incredible, powerful, but sometimes scary world of the Internet.
“Kids spend so much time in front of the computer, tablet, phone and other devices these days. We think it is important for kids to read this book and to talk to their parents about what they are doing to stay safe. We want to share some of the things we have learned throughout the process of building our network” said Zachary.
“As soon as you’re old enough to click a mouse button, it seems you can access the world from your bedroom”, says Joshua. “But going on the Internet can also create problems and dangers for us kids. Our book makes it easy for kids to understand the good, the bad, and the flat-out ugly – and there’s plenty of all three online.” Joshua added.
BarnesAndNoble.com recently announced that it will carry the title in their retail stores and online. The book is also available at Amazon.com.
