Parenting in a Digital World: Stop fighting, start connecting: The E-book!

I want to help my child make good decisions online but I’m not sure how?

When I ask my child to stop playing a game he gets upset and says I don’t understand

My child wants to play on their device all the time.

My child wants to play on social media sites I have heard are not appropriate for their age.

How can I protect what my child is being exposed to online?

I can’t take away the technology because they say they need to do homework?

They keep blocking me from seeing what they post.

How do I know if they are being bullied? Or bullying others?

I can’t keep up. They know so much more than me!

Are these questions that have been bandied around your home, or statements you have thought about before?

If so, then firstly, you are not alone. So much so that I have written a book covering these concerns and many more of the challenges parents face when it comes to managing their families use of technology and the online world.

Here are just a few testimonials from some people I really respect, so I was honoured that they could offer their endorsements:

“Parenting in the Digital World: Stop fighting, Start connecting” is such a valuable and comprehensive book on what it means to be both a parent and a child growing up in today’s digital society. Martine offers an extensive understanding of the challenges of the modern world enabling her to offer realistic strategies to better help parents. By giving us a very real perspective of what kids are facing, Martine forces us to recognize the complexities of this world while at the same time empowering parents to make the best choices for their kids. Her responses to situations are therefore based not on fear, but on getting it right for our families in a positive way. As someone that believes that offline parenting will help your child make better online choices, this is the perfect book to parlay into this philosophy. It is a book that is relevant and essential for parents of kids of all ages, from toddlers to teens, it will give you a window into where to start and keep your conversations continuing.” Sue Scheff, Author, Speaker, Parent & Family Internet Safety Advocate, USA Today, Dr Phil, Fox News, CNN, New York Times.

“Parenting in a Digital World is filled with practical tips that help us parents navigate this technological path our kids are walking (or running!). As a mum to two young children, it’s helped me to see where we’re going so that I can keep that big picture in my mind before we encounter the online world together. The strategies Martine shares are great for parenting in general, and I’ll be reading the book again and again over the coming years to remind myself of these”  Megan Blandford, Writer, blogger.

I am so excited to get this book out in to the world and I know it will help you no matter where you are on your parenting journey. If you find it any any way helpful please share with those you think may benefit.
