Taming the Techno-Beast, Parenting in the Internet Age

2014 NCHE Annual Conference and Book Fair
General interest to all parents

X-Boxes, Game-Cubes, the Internet, MP3 players, and iPhones have changed the way we live, have fun and interact. Children quietly glued to game monitors for hours have replaced laughter and creativity. They beg to play, whine when they can’t and even lie about the time they’ve spent on “the gadget.” Teens and pre-teens spend most of their waking hours texting, chatting on Facebook or ‘tweeting’ on Twitter. Today’s latest breaking technology becomes tomorrow’s obsession. Technology has become a powerful tool, but maybe you feel like you’ve lost control in your own home. Do you feel like a beast has invaded your home, but you don’t know how to handle it? If so, then join me as we talk together about the timely topic of taming the techno-beast!
