Parents' Computer Companion: A Guide to Software and Online Resources : A majority of homes with children now have computers, but many parents lack either the knowledge or the confidence to help their kids make use of valuable resources. Parents' Computer Companion is an instructional guide that enables families to locate and use the best online and computer products available so they can help their children learn. This book answers many of the questions parents ask, such as:
-- What kind of computer do I need?
-- What are the best online educational resources?
-- How can I child-proof my computer?
-- What educational software is available and worthwhile?
Jason Baker also discusses steps for keeping children and computer equipment safe, as well as ways to prevent data loss. Especially beneficial is the section describing dangers of the Internet and methods for blocking access to objectionable sites. Dozens of screen shots will help readers visualize online sites and computer software products.
Parents, homeschoolers, and teachers will find a wealth of practical information in this easy-to-read book.
