A new book just came out yesterday by acclaimed childhood development and technology experts John Palfrey (President, MacArthur Foundation) and Urs Gasser (Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard Law School) and it couldn't be more timely. The Connected Parent: An Expert Guide to Parenting in a Digital World is here to help all of us navigate the online world of raising kids.
What Kids are Dealing With Right Now
The Connected Parent: An Expert Guide to Parenting in a Digital World addresses parents’ growing panic around raising the first generation of digital natives.
Did you know: Today’s teenagers spend about nine hours per day online.
I've got a teenager and I know what we are up against. The phone is so alluring and digital life is often ahead of everything else. Parents of this ultra-connected generation struggle with decisions completely new to parenting:
- Should an eight-year-old be allowed to go on social media?
- How can parents help their children gain the most from the best aspects of the digital age?
- How can we keep kids safe from digital harm?
John Palfrey and Urs Gasser bring together over a decade of research at Harvard to tackle parents’ most urgent concerns. The Connected Parent is required reading for anyone trying to help their kids flourish in the fast-changing, uncharted territory of the digital age.
It’s extremely timely considering the unique back-to-school concerns that Covid-19 has raised for parents, particularly around the effectiveness of remote learning. You can purchase the book on the Basic Books Website here.
