Now more than ever, our children need parents to lead them. Authority that was once ascribed is more relational; popular culture and Internet and mobile technology expose and empower our children to engage in increasingly risky ideas and activities at earlier ages.
“We can’t teach what Banana Moments offers parents,” said Kelly Graham, Principal at Olympus Junior High in Roseville, Ca., “It’s a good message at a time when our children are exposed to so much through Internet-enabled tools.”

In a world where it is easy to believe you can simply “google” everything you need to know, who needs a parent, educator, coach or physician to impart wisdom?
A book about parenting with peace of mind in a cyber powered world.
Parenting is a divine appointment, and freedom from manipulation of the social network comes from our God-given ability to think for ourselves. That authority cannot be taken away.
