Digital Parenting book by Anne Livignston

“Talking Digital: Tips and Scripts for Parenting in the Digital World: A Parent's Guide to Teaching Kids How to Share Smart and Stay Safe Online.” (available on Amazon)

Being the Digital Age, would you be surprised that there are dozens of fantastic digital parenting books available? Familoop’s very own Digital Parenting Expert, Anne Livingston, has penned a thoroughly good read that is chock full of timely parenting advice. Ms. Livingston’s book, “Talking Digital: Tips and Scripts for Parenting in the Digital World: A Parent's Guide to Teaching Kids How to Share Smart and Stay Safe Online” is essentially a “how-to” manual on raising kids. Ms. Livingston’s digital journey began when she first discovered the extent that companies collect personal data online. As a Mother of three, this concern for privacy evolved into a personal crusade to help educate parents and provide actionable learnings so that all kids can be protected while browsing online and enjoying social media.


Digital Parenting book by Martine Oglethorpe

“Parenting in the Digital World: Stop Fighting and Start Sharing.” (available on author's website)

Another fantastic read to add to your digital parenting books library is “Parenting in the Digital World: Stop Fighting and Start Sharing.” Author Martine Oglethorpe’s mantra is “less stress.” If you often feel overwhelmed by the demands on your time ensuring your child is safe while he or she is surfing, chatting, and sharing, then this is definitely one of the parenting books to own. Now that the book is available as an ebook, you can easily find time to learn tips and tricks to reduce stress and make peace with technology, incorporating the digital world into your home in constructive and safe ways.


Parenting book by Annie Fox

“Teaching Kids to be Good People: Progressive Parenting for the 21st Century.” (available on author's website)

“We live in a time shaped by a viral culture of cruelty,” explains author Annie Fox, however don’t let that get you down too much. After reading Ms. Fox’s book, “Teaching Kids to be Good People: Progressive Parenting for the 21st Century” is a treasure trove of inspiring ways to be a better parent in these confusing times. The overall theme is particularly important: that it isn’t always enough to be good, one must do good. For those who enjoy parenting books available in print, this book is for you. Ms. Fox’s book is also available as an ebook for those who prefer parenting books in digital format.


Digital Parenting book by Winifred Lloyds Lender Ph.D.
