"The cry of every parent and church leader in this generation is "How do I help create media-safe homes?" This is a wonderful resource that gives practical answers to the most-often asked questions about how to handle social media. I loved the sections on setting limits and the importance of dealing with bullying and porn. This is my go-to book for parents."

"As parents, we find ourselves living on the "digital frontier." Like the pioneers who crossed the country to settle the Wild West, every step we take into this new technological landscape moves us further and further into uncharted territory.

This book will serve you as a wise and valuable tool in your digital parenting toolbox."
