I wrote this book in response to my Mother’s Circle reader votes, it was the top choice and the topic I least wanted to write about. It was hard! But one of the principles of Naked Parenting is that usually, the hard thing to do is the right thing to do so I dove in and learned and reflected as I researched and wrote.
I’m happy to offer a five day promotion of a free download of the Kindle format – download and share it with your friends.
Here’s a little about Naked Parenting: Guiding Kids in a Digital World:
From social media, apps, video games, texting, cyberbullying, privacy, and identity theft, guiding kids in a digital world can be overwhelming. Parents need concrete strategies to manage technology in our homes in ways that fit our family values and culture.
Naked Parenting is parenting stripped down to the bare basics focusing on seven keys to raising kids who are self-sufficient, confident, respectful, and resilient. The seven keys, introduced in the original Naked Parenting: Raising Kids With Confidence – love, honesty, communication, responsibility, discipline, mistakes, and gratitude – guide the discussion in this book on technology and cyberspace.
Naked Parenting approaches parenting in an honest, direct, and realistic way. Guiding children with love, nurturing their strengths and self image, and instilling personal responsibility are at the heart of Naked Parenting. It’s hard, if not impossible, for parents to keep up with the pace of technology. Forget juggling work, kids, commitments, volunteer jobs, and laundry. The good news is you don’t need to be literate in every new thing that crops up. However, you do need an awareness and a parenting framework that adapts to whatever comes next.
We need ways to manage technology in our homes in a big picture, broad way that will teach our children good digital citizenship, online responsibility, self-regulation, and how to benefit from technologies while staying safe. It’s a huge and important job. So how do we tackle all of that? Naked Parenting: Guiding Kids in a Digital World gives usable tips applicable broadly to the digital world from a parenting perspective instead of from a techie viewpoint. While some specifics are used in examples and stories throughout the book, this is not meant to teach you any details about any currently popular Internet or mobile innovation. With the rapid changes in technologies, I want to give you tools that transcend specific platforms, devices, video games, or the app of the moment.
The principles of Naked Parenting overlap, interrelate, and reinforce one another. Understanding these seven keys will help you apply them across the countless scenarios of parenting through all stages and ages.
