Former White House policy expert, nationally syndicated columnist, and media advisor on all things parenting, Marybeth Hicks offers practical and heartfelt solutions for families to bond through social media and cultural advancements.
All parents face tough questions of how to guide their kids in today s media-obsessed culture. Whether it s deciding how to monitor your child s Internet usage, knowing what to watch and not to watch on TV, or facing the question of when a child should be allowed to access Facebook, parents must navigate the new and ever-changing opportunities the digitized world provides for our youth. So where to begin? In "Teachable Moments," Hicks offers positive and productive ways to teach their children about media, freedom, and responsibility without shunning technology and culture.
Hicks s practical and heartfelt solutions allow families to grow together while navigating a controversial media-based culture. Instead of shying away or completely isolating children from these difficult and sometimes uncomfortable cultural changes, she suggests media be used as a tool to teach children to live moral and faithful lives. For example, instead of directly stating the age at which a child should be allowed to have a Facebook account, Hicks digs deeper with sample responses and questions children may have and how a parent can use those responses as a chance to guide, explain, and instruct their children with Christian values.
As the go-to expert on parenting today, Hicks has established herself as a widely trusted source on all things parenting especially when it comes to the media. "Teachable Moments "is not only a handy reference book for parents at any stage in the parenting journey; it is an essential guide to helping your children grow into responsible, well-informed, and faithful adults.
