Teens Gone Wired: Are you ready? – What I’m Currently Reading

In a world where kids are constantly connected to the smartphones and always posting on social networks like Facebook and Twitter, Lyndsay Green’s Teens Gone Wired: Are you ready? (Thomas Allen) is an ideal guide for parents feeling intimidated by the virtual world their teens are immersed in every day.

Teens Gone Wired takes a look at the challenges parents face with their teens constantly wired to the Internet, and includes indispensable advice from dozens of parents who have gone through the experience, along with many helpful  support resources to refer to if you need help.  The book addresses common arguments faced by families including: what’s fun vs. an unhealthy obsession; what and what not to share online; real friends vs. virtual friends; and maintaining privacy/anonymity.

Teens Gone Wired is a great refresher for anyone – even for people who aren’t parents like me – and allows you to brush up on your Internet “street smart” skills.

For parents with teens specifically, if you feel like you’re losing control over your kids and what they’re doing online, this will let you gain some understanding and knowledge, so you can be on the same page as your kids.  At the very least, you will know for which red flags to look out for, and ensure your kids are surfing the web safely.
