LOS ANGELES -- Two Intel senior managers have recently come out with a book -- "The PC Dads Guide to Becoming a Computer-Smart Parent" (DTP Trade Paperbacks; $13.95) -- that may prove useful to parents worried about what their children are doing on the computer.
Of course, the 311-page book can be encapsulated by the sage advice on Page 118: "You have time to spend together with your child. Avoid the temptation to use the computer as an electronic babysitter. Instead, make it a partnership affair, something you both share and enjoy. We call this shoulder-to-shoulder learning."
