Parenting in the Digital Age

Great piece last week in the Boston Globe magazine on parenting in the digital age.

In my opinion, the most important takeaway, according to the author of the piece, Neil Swidey, was this:

“I no longer believe that we have to choose between ceding the high-tech ground to our digital-native children or feigning and straining to control all aspects of it.  There can be a third way.  And while it’s true that technology often puts up thick walls between parents and their kids, if used the right way, it can also be surprisingly good at helping to break them down.”

Amen, brother!
