Format: Paperback
In the age of technology where the kids are far more savvy than their parents a book like this is a must read. There are some common sense rules for online social interaction as well guidelines for children to protect themselves. More importantly, the book sets the tone for encouraging parents to be observant and aware as well as empowering them to understand how this generation interact.

**** I was provided with a copy of this book for my honest opinion ****

Format: Paperback
iRules was a great read! It's chock full of insight, tips and humor to help us cope with the increasingly crazy world of technology - The Good, The Bad and The Ugly of it. The content of iRules is clearly relevant from a technology viewpoint, but its emphasis on communicating with your kids early and often - and then following through and parenting them - is a blueprint for success. It certainly doesn't guarantee success but it sure allows the technologically challenged to hit the ground running and at least know what the heck our kids are talking about! Ignorance is NOT bliss. Fact. The author comes across as a woman who has lived it just like the rest of us, but not in a holier-than-thou way. Kids are kids and most will test the boundaries like it's their job, so iRules helps parents (or anybody!) get in the game and stay there. Like that TV commercial says, "When you're in a horror movie you make bad decisions. Let's hide behind the chainsaws!" Do yourself a favor and avoid a lifetime of horrow shows by "getting in the running car..." - and consider picking this book up.
