Michael Calce

Jessica Gottlieb MSW, T.S., Clinical Social Worker and children's book author and Michael Calce, President of Optimal Secure and HP Security Advisory Board Chairman, combined their expertise to create a textbook/workbook for children, parents, caregivers and schools.


Their book takes a proactive approach to cyber safety through a mental health lens. The ultimate goal is to help children and teenagers understand the risks they face online and develop coping tools and strategies to safely navigate and respond to online experiences.


Children and teens aged 9 to 14 will learn various coping skills to help them deal with sadness, worry and anger. They will also learn how to build self-confidence and increase their cyber resilience. Children and teens should know how to be safe when surfing the web and protecting themselves against cyberbullying in the same way as they learn about stranger danger.

This workbook also explains the benefits of screen-time safety. The book has a unique format; there is a combination of a story and an interactive worksheet/factsheet component. Also included is a parent fact sheet, cyber Hygiene: A Guide for Parents and Caregivers. It is recommended that this book be read with a book buddy such as a parent, caregiver, teacher or trusted adult.
