While this resource is a tremendous timesaver, it accomplishes something far more important by sending the message to kids, "You may know more than I do about technology, but I know more about life and the consequences of your actions. I am responsible for you and that is the most important job I will ever have." This eBook promotes open communication and generates deep, meaningful discussion about the serious UNSPOKEN issues faced by kids 24/7 in a digital world.
