Do you really know what your teen/tween living in YOUR house is doing online? You might not realize it, but they are living a completely different life in the digital world.

A MUST FOR PARENTS This book will help you understand social media, technology etc., and how to set healthy boundaries with your children in a digital age. The Family Discussion Points are a great way to understand what your children are viewing and how to establish boundaries. Highly recommend!
