FCV095 Kids, Digital Media, and a Parents' Role, Cory Warren

Family Confidential: Secrets of Successful Parenting with Annie Fox, M.Ed. show

Summary: Has parenting really changed all that much since we're now raising our children in the Digital Age? Not according to G. Cory Warren, Corporate Communications Director at LifeLock. LifeLock partnered with the National Parent Teacher Association (P.T.A) to develop a free online tool for parents called The Smart Talk. According to Cory, "The role of parents today is not any different than the role of parents who came before. It's to be involved, to have conversations, and to show an interest in what your kids are interested in so you can help guide them along that path." If your child's interest includes sending and receiving content via digital devices, then parents might need updated guidance tools. Annie talks with Cory about The Smart Talk tool and how it works to get parents and kids together for a conversation about being responsible about the new technology. About G.
