Press Inquiries

“I encourage every parent to read this book, go to some of the Internet sites listed, and “get connected.” The world our children are growing up in is changing – and we need to keep up!” – Nancy L. Brown, PhD, Teen 411

“Goodstein presents a solid and accessible guide to help understand the wired generation.” – Publisher’s Weekly

“Fortunately, this is not just a gloom-and-doom text highlighting the fears and dangers of online life. Goodstein includes great detail about how tools like blogs, social-networking sites, and podcasts have many positive uses that can enhance a teen’s education, creativity, and social life. Her tips and strategies will allow readers to make the most of these technologies in ways that are useful, fun, and, most importantly, safe.” – School Library Journal
