)-- Kat Mahoney, Veteran PC Video Gamer, Geek Mom, and Tech Industry Journalist shares 20 years of industry-related experience and parenting in Why We're Failing As Parents In A Tech-Driven Society, released this month on Amazon.com, Nook, and Kindle.
Why We're Failing As Parents In A Tech-Driven Society is an informative handbook, focused on parental responsibility, video game knowledge, and social connection in the digital generation.
According to Mahoney, "Our children are becoming more and more exposed to technology and social networking communities everyday and at such a very early age. iPods, iPads, Androids, iPhones, Laptops, Xbox, Facebook, and more are overwhelming our children on a daily basis and they are becoming more dependent on these gadgets than ever before. In school, work, and home, technology is taking a far greater influence over our children than family values. How can we balance parental control, Internet safety, and healthy lifestyles with such rapidly growing tools when they are being used and given to our children everywhere they go? Whether you’re a parent or a grandparent, this short, but informative handbook can help guide you through the ever-changing world of digital online technology."
Kat Mahoney shares her tips, resources, and information over 20 years in the industry on how we can co-exist positively while raising children in the technology and video game generation.
"Parenting doesn't come with a handbook, and it can be very challenging and frustrating as it is, but it's even more of a challenge when you're living in a digital era that your children have already mastered before they're five!" Mahoney said. "This can be both frightening and frustrating for parents who are trying to grow with the social change while keeping their children safe and respectful."
"Why We're Failing As Parents In A Tech Driven Society will help new parents and parents whose children are reaching social media and digital age, become more involved without losing their cool," Mahoney says.
