Mojo Mom Podcast and Internet Safety

Phew, this ended up being a crazy week and I got behind in blogging, but I did manage to get The Mojo Mom Podcast produced.

In this week's show, after Sheryl and I talk, I am joined by Internet Safety expert Linda Criddle.

Listen to the podcast now:



Linda addresses Internet Safety for all ages--kids, parents, grandparents. I have had a chance to get to know Linda well and I am an admirer of her work. Her book Look Both Ways provides detailed, understandable information about how to stay safe online. Here's an article by Linda about eight safety tips for blogging. Linda provides a solid framework, and if you choose to share more public information than the basics she suggests, you'll be doing so out of a conscious decision and not as a habit or default.

Here's this week's podcast, Mojo Mom and Internet Safety expert Linda Criddle:

Amy and Sheryl are able to easily integrate the first and second halves of the show today since the topic is technology and internet safety.

Then Mojo Mom interviews Linda Criddle, world-renowned expert, former Microsoft executive and mother of four. Linda's highly informative website is Using the Internet Safely For Seniors (For Dummies).

Linda and I got into a pretty intense, detailed discussion as we talked about the research into internet safety. I left the whole discussion intact, because it provided an important opportunity to go beyond sound bites and sensational headlines into a substantive examination of these issues.

Thanks for this podcast! Great stuff. I know there are a number of approaches to Internet safety in schools and in the home. I wrote a post about this a while back:
