Internet dangers & Juvenoia

This is a terrific speech about how public “juvenoia” about the Internet is out of step with actual statistics regarding crimes against children. It’s given by Dr. David Finkelhor, Director of the Center for Crimes Against Children Research. Crimes against children (including self-inflicting crimes of suicide) have *declined* overall in recent years.  Thanks to Anne Collier of NetFamilyNews.org for bringing this to widespread attention!  Both are cited in my book Parenting in the Digital Age, which will soon enter production!  More on that soon….
