Parenting in the digital age is a journey none of our ancestors had to traverse. And, until now, there were very few guidebooks for parents who are negotiating this new territory.
Questions such as — How involved should parents be in their young adults’ digital life? Can a child’s developmental journey be disrupted by excess social media usage? Or, do well-known parenting rules of the past, such as modeling the behavior you want your child to exhibit, apply to technology?
To reveal the data, Harvesting Happiness Podcast Host Lisa Cypers Kamen asks two educators to discuss their parental guidebooks and provide their expert insights on this newly charted subject matter.
Award-winning author, Dr. Alex Packer describes the key takeaways from his newest book, Slaying Digital Dragons: Tips and Tools for Protecting Your Body, Brain, Psyche, and Thumbs From the Digital Dark Side.
And, therapist Neil Brown LCSW shares actionable strategies from his work Ending the Parent-Teen Control Battle: Resolve the Power Struggle and Build Trust, Responsibility, and Respect.
