Raising a Tech Healthy Family

An interview with Janell Burley Hoffman

iRules- What Every Tech Healthy Family needs to know about Selfies, Sexting, Gaming and Growing Up, a new book by by Janell Burley Hofmann, provides families with the tools they need to find a balance between technology and human interaction through a philosophy she calls Slow-Tech Parenting. In the book, she educates parents about the online culture tweens and teens enter the minute they go online, exploring issues like cyberbullying, friend fail, and sexting, and helps parents create their own iRules contracts to fit their families' needs.  iRules helps parents figure out when to unplug and how to stay in sync with the changing world of technology, while teaching their children self-respect, integrity, and responsibility.
