Joys and Perils Part 2-for Parents

This weekend, I will have the honor of speaking to parents at my church, St. John’s Episcopal Church-Norwood Parish, about the Joys and Perils of a Digital Life-Parent Edition. In the past few weeks, I have immersed myself in this topic even more than usual by through reading (including the newly released “The Big Disconnect”)  and (as fate would have it) listening to the great NPR series on this topic.

The more I read and the more I hear, the more I come to believe that intentional, communicative, compassionate parenting (and educating) is the key for our children. They need positive models, words, support, and follow-through as they, along with us, navigate the rocky waters of a life online.
