Parenting For The Digital Age - Now Available!

- Bill's new book, Parenting for the Digital Age, published by Familius Press -

Parenting for the Digital Age: The Truth About Media’s Effect on Children and What to do About It is a chronicle of life in an advertising family which led the author to become one of the most popular voices in America on TV Cartoons, games, movie trailers, and commercials. But having children caused Bill to stop and ask: What do we do about all the electronic media coming into our kids’ lives? Children are a major target of today’s media marketers. So in middle-age Bill went back to college and pioneered a program in the Los Angeles Public Schools to educate children about the major purpose of TV and the internet - to sell.
This book is a valuable guide for parents and educators on how to view, teach, and control today's new media and technology that is being made available to children.
