Mind - When a Parent's Love Comes With Conditions - - 0 views

  • praising children for doing something right isn’t a meaningful alternative to pulling back or punishing when they do something wrong. Both are examples of conditional parenting, and both are counterproductive.
  • In practice,

Web-monitoring software gathers data on kid chats by AP: Yahoo! Tech - 0 views

The information is then offered to businesses seeking ways to tailor their marketing messages to kids.

Victims were adolescents, not younger children. Most offenders were open about their sexual motives in their online communications with youth. Few crimes (5 percent) involved violence
