What Is 'The iConnected Parent'?

Our ability to connect 24/7 has changed parenting and kids’ ability to grow up. This shift has occurred so rapidly though, that there’s been little guidance on how to navigate this new digital landscape. Now, the advice to just “let go” is about as relevant as a rotary phone. The iConnected Parent: Staying Close to your Kids in College (and Beyond) While Letting Them Grow Up, a book built on reporting and research fills this void.

The Loomis Chaffee School, Windsor, CT

Abby really connected with the audience, full of parents eager for information on navigating the tricky waters of parenting their "emerging adult" children in this digital age. She offered practical and reassuring advice, tied to real-world examples, that the parents really appreciated and could put to immediate use. This is a great session for parents of high-school- or college-age students, who are away from home for the first time.

She blanketed her parents, especially her mom, in a blizzard of unhappy messages and calls. Her concerned parents responded, her mom flying out twice to see her. What happened next is over the top, at least in the college’s eyes. As the breakup got messier (the guy wanted to just “be friends,” but the girl couldn’t tolerate that), both students’ parents asked the college to intervene and help the unhappy ex-couple sort through their relationship, as it was.


"That request amazed college officials." Read more
