An excellent overview of what its like to be a parent (and a child) in the digital age. This is not a diatribe against technology, but an acknowledgment that technology is here to stay. So what do we need to know about its effects? And how can we make the best of it?
Miller proposes limits but also interactions (using technology as a connecting point). His chapter on Digital Soul is helpful for church professionals and volunteers.Here are a few sentences from his last paragraph: As parents, we need to pay attention to what is occurring in the technological lives of our children. We need to call a time-out when the stress of digital life takes away from the humanity of our family. We need to be advocates for our children when companies compromise their privacy or create games, toys and websites that we feel are unacceptable. We need to play side by side with our iKids, listen to them, and learn from them as they use the technological tools at their disposal to create a new world.
We need to be part of the conversation.
