I just received a couple of great comments from Joey, a mature 14-year-old with some great insights on parenting. You can see his comments on my post on “Get your kids off the computer without nagging” and “Video game addiction.”
Joey’s comments are a great lead into my post today.
I was interviewed by Aurelia Williams on the topic of “Parenting kids in the age of the internet.” I address the issues that Joey raised about how parents need to understand why kids are on the computer so much. Click here to go to the podcast.
There is much more that has to be said on this topic.Â I recently did a seminar for 1 1/2 hours on this topic and we barely scratched the surface.
I am currently writing a book about this issue, and will let you know when it’s ready.
In the meantime, read some of my previous posts under the category of Kids and Computers, and I’ll be posting more about this later on as well.
