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.
