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.”
