When I saw the title, Logged On and Tuned Out, I assumed the ‘tuned out’ referred to children who spend too much time on the computer. The author, Vicki Courtney, had other people in mind – hopelessly, tuned out parents. As the advances in technology continue to accelerate, many parents have not kept up.
Written from a mom’s perspective, this book covers IMing (If you don’t now what that IM stands for, you really need the book.), monitoring software, and cell phone usage. She gives valuable information about social networking sites such as MySpace and Facebook. Do you know if your child has uploaded pics to a blog or videos to YouTube?
The author observes, “There are lots of clueless, uncaring, irresponsible parents out there.” Don’t let this be said of you. Logged On and Tuned Out will clue you in. Courtney offers a nontechie crash course to better understand the technology-driven world in which our tech-savvy children live. Recommended!
