Item Description...
Do you know where your tween or teen is hanging out and making
friends? It may be the mall, or the local Starbucks, but chances are
even better that they?re hanging out virtual style. Almost two-thirds of
American teens use Instant Messenger. has over 55
million members, adding over 85,000 profiles each day. These two
technologies have utterly redefined how typical youth spend time with
friends. And they have important implications for today?s parents who
are desperate for advice and guidance in what can seem to be a scary
new world.
Addresses the questions:
? How and why do teens use online communication
technology like IM and MySpace?
? What are the pros and cons of teens using this
? How can parents start discussions about IM and
MySpace with their children?

Publishers Description
Connected provides summary of current research on computer-mediated-communication in reader-friendly terms; real-life insight, stories, and advice from middle school, high school, and college-aged students who use IM and MySpace on a regular basis, including how they think parents should respond; advice and insight from Christian parents who have dealt with teens who use online communications; a summary of parenting advice from leading scholars and authors and practical parenting tips and discussion starters.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Highly recommended for parents everywhere.  Feb 5, 2008
Associate professor of communication Peggy Kendall presents Connected: Christian Parenting in an Age of IM and MySpace, a plain-terms introduction to the myriad of online social options that teens and tweens use today. Though addressed to Christian parents, Connected is not dogmatic; its straightforward presentation is thoroughly accessible to parents of all religious faiths. "In addition to failing to comprehend the giving nature of friendships, it is also possible that by building and maintaining your friendships in this very stark, fast-paced, self-based medium, young people are losing many of the relational skills necessary for getting along with people... Unfortunately, using the computer to enhance friendships may be making this problem even more serious as teens learn to multitask their friendships, surfing in and out of conversations, conflicts, and commitments." Though a cautionary tale of the hazards of online communication tools, from letting them overtake real life friendships to the risk of encountering sexual predators, Connected is not a unilateral attack on MySpace and the like. Connected recognizes that instant messaging, blogs, and other online communications are here to stay; the key is not to ban one's children from using them, but to teach children how to use them responsibly, while protecting themselves both physically and emotionally. Highly recommended for parents everywhere.
