What leaders & parents are saying…
“My favorite thing about this book is that it doesn’t take a doom-and-gloom approach to technology. It recognizes the bad parts AND the good parts, providing a road map for the future.”
-Jon Acuff, New York Times Bestselling author of Do Over
“As parents of two teenage boys, this book couldn't be more timely or relevant. We're so glad to discover it. This highly accessible book is not only grounded in research, it's immeasurably practical. If you're a parent you'll want to read this book–and you'll be a better parent because of it!
-Drs. Les & Leslie Parrott, Authors of Saving Your Marriage Before it Starts
“The cry of every parent and church leader in this generation is 'How do I help create media-safe homes?' This book is a wonderful resource that gives practical answers to the most-often asked questions about how to handle social media. I loved the sections on setting limits and the importance of dealing with bullying and porn. This is my go-to book for parents”
-Dr. Jim Burns, President of HomeWord, Author of Confident Parenting
“As parents, we find ourselves living on the "digital frontier." Like pioneers who crossed the country to settle the Wild West, every step we take into this new technological landscape moves us further and further into uncharted territory. Figuring out how best to navigate the journey for our kids and for ourselves is not an option for parents; it's a necessity. This resource will serve you as a wise and valuable tool in your digital parenting toolbox.”
-Dr. Walt Mueller, President of Center for Parent/Youth Understanding
