My girls are all about the tech gadgets these days. In fact, Abby Grace has decided she wants to use her “spend” money on an iPad or a Kindle Fire! And she isn’t even 9!
I get that kids these days are receiving phones (as in iPhones… not cheapos!) at a much younger age, but are we, as parents prepared for everything that comes with this younger generation and technology? I’m not sure I am!
My kids are growing up in a time where they don’t know of a life before cell phones, social media, and even the internet. *I* remember life without all of these (yes, I know I sound old), but now I rely on all three of those on a daily basis for both my business and personal life.

As a high-profile blogger and the creator of Twitter parties, Amy knows social media. For me, this will be a valuable resource as I help my children navigate the ever-changing internets. In fact, Abby Grace has been bugging me to let her begin blogging (I may or may not have bought a few domains for her), and while I love that she wants to be like her Momma, I do have a few reservations. Right now, the girls do not use our iPhones and iPad to access the internet; they are only allowed to play games, but I know this will soon change. I love that Amy addresses all of these concerns and more. I’m also beyond thrilled for my friend for realizing her dream of writing a book, so naturally, I want to share that with you guys!
I hope you will check out Amy’s book, because while she is my friend, I truly think this is a valuable resource and very needed right now.
