How can we get teens AND parents to engage in conversation about the devices that are dominating most of their waking hours? (yeah… even parents)
I’ve been teaching parent workshops for about 15 years now, and speaking to teens about 20. But I’ve never done a workshop with them in the same room… until now! This is a subject that needs to be addressed to families, together… in the same room.
The interview provides good news for parents. We’ve all made mistakes. Instead of beating yourself up, ask, “How can I learn from this? How can I make changes? Lets stop dwelling on the past and let’s look at the future.”
As one of my loyal blog readers, you know I love giving you free stuff and rarely ask you for anything in return.
Today I ask for one simple thing… your stars.
Okay… I guess I’m actually asking you to read my newest book (hundreds of you have already bought it), because that’s the only way you can give it five stars. I’m talking about my brand new parenting book, If I Had a Parenting Do Over. Amazon has it in stock now and I’m asking my readers to simply pop onto Amazon and post a quick review after you read the book.
As one of my regular blog readers, you know I enjoy giving you unique opportunities to read and try out resources before they’re even finished, chiming in with your opinion. This month I have one of those opportunities.
At the end of this month I’ll turn in a finished manuscript to my publisher—my newest book-in-process—The Teens Guide to Social Media and Mobile Devices. This is the first time I’m even releasing this title (it comes out later this year).
My publisher just emailed, and they’ve received my brand new book, If I Had a Parenting Do Over, fresh from the printer… and boxes are on their way to my house, my upcoming workshops, Amazon, LifeWay… and all the other book stores. (Many of you saw Jim Daly talking with me about this book on Focus on the Family’s Facebook page just a few weeks ago).
And Amazon is literally crazy right now! “Crazy” in a good way.
Many of you caught when I was a guest on Focus on the Family’s daily broadcast last month (a video clip of that show HERE). Focus had me back last week to continue the conversation with Jim Daly and John Fuller about parenting…
The year-end is upon us and we’re looking back at the best and worst of 2016. Here’s yet another Top 5:
At the beginning of 2016 my 19th book hit the shelves, and I signed contracts for two more, one which I finished writing this summer and will release next month. (You’ll hear about the second one soon enough—but I’ll tell you this. It’s based off the popularity of my candid book to young men, but this one is to ALL teens about what it actually looks like to be wise with social media.)
