Transition, v26 n4 Dec 1996
To keep pace with ever changing families, the staff of the "Transitions" newsletter has been exploring the Internet for on-line family resources. This issue of "Transition," in French and English language editions, looks as how families and those interested in family issues can best use this new technology. Feature articles are: (1) "Gateways to a World of Family Information," on how families can find contacts, entertainment, information and friends on the Internet; (2) "Web of Deception," on Internet privacy and security concerns for children; (3) "Balancing Work and Family"; (4) "Families Online," on a child care Web site and networking contacts; (5) "Individual and Public Safety in a Changing Society," on the Canada Safety Council, which has put together statistics and commentaries on youth crime and justice; and (6) "Online with VIF," with instructions on how to access the Vanier Institute of the Family Website.
