Team of Experts to Help You Handle Technology Boundaries
It's a new world, with changes we could not have imagined years ago. Parenting has always been challenging, but these days the hardest parts of parenting involve electronic gadgets or technology. Whether dealing with smart phones, tablets, computers, social media, or video games, parents need help figuring out how to manage this new environment.
But how, exactly?
Imagine sitting down with a team of experts and having a heart-felt and encouraging conversation with educators and counselors, along with real parents, as they guide you to create a healthier home for your child, even in the midst of this technology-steeped generation. That's what you'll find in my new book, TechnoLogic: How to Set Logical Technology Boundaries and Stop the Zombie Apocalypse, designed to help you set logical technology boundaries in your home. TechnoLogic includes contributors from many disciplines and walks of life.
Check out who you get to sit down with, in our book-based conversation:
Todd Wilson of Familyman Ministries is the author of Taming the Techno-Beast, Helping You Understand and Navigate Your Child’s Electronic World book and workbook set.
Todd is a dad, writer, conference speaker, and former pastor. His humor is well known and his down-to-earth “realness” has made him a favorite speaker at homeschool conventions across the country. You may also have heard him speak on Focus on the Family. As founder of Familyman Ministries, his passion and mission are to remind dads and moms of what’s most important through weekly emails, seminars, and books.
Todd and his wife, Debbie, homeschool six of their eight children. Two of them have already graduated. They live in Northern Indiana and travel across America in The Familyman Mobile. Learn more at The Familyman website. Todd knows what he is talking about and has vast experience talking with parents about technology and many other issues. You can completely trust his knowledge, judgment, and experience as he consults with families around the world.

Real parents have shared their family stories in TechnoLogic. Some stories are painful but they are always honest and revealing. Your comments and questions gathered from my work as The HomeScholar have provided much of the inspiration for this book.
Scattered throughout the book you will also find encouraging tidbits and tiny quotes that I call Lee's Lessons - helping you feel like I'm coming along side you to help with creating technology boundaries.
I'm very excited about the launch of my new book, coming out this week on Amazon! To look inside and pick up your own copy, click here!
