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.

  • 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?
