Abby on Better Connecticut



As a parent of two soon to be college students, I found Abby’s seminar based on her book The iConnected Parent,  to be very timely, informative and thought provoking!  The “connection” and communication between parent and child is always a topic of concern and discussion. Ms. Moore’s research and presentation highlights technology’s effect on our interpersonal  communication methods, frequency and the possible positive and negative consequences of  the iConnected world we live in. --Lorraine G. Marchetti
