What leaders & parents are saying…

``As parents of two teenage boys, Right Click couldn’t be more timely or relevant. We’re so glad to discover it. This highly accessible book is not only grounded in research, it’s immeasurably practical. If you’re a parent you'll want to read this book—and you’ll be a better parent because of it!``- Drs. Les & Leslie Parrott, Authors of Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts
``My favorite thing about this book is that it doesn't take a doom and gloom approach to technology. It recognizes the bad parts AND the good parts, providing a road map for the future.``- Jon Acuff, New York Times Bestselling Author of Do Over
``The cry of every parent and church leader in this generation is 'How do I help create media-safe homes?' Right Click is a wonderful resource that gives practical answers to the most-often asked questions about how to handle social media. I loved the sections on setting limits and the importance of dealing with bullying and porn. This is my go-to book for parents.``- Dr. Jim Burns, President of HomeWord, Author of Confident Parenting
``As a parent of teenagers, this is the book I wish I’d had ten years ago before smartphones and social media challenged the skillsets of parenting. The first wave of trials and triumphs have come to pass, and Right Click captures the best wisdom and research to help future parents stand on the shoulders of those who have come before. Steal their wisdom and read this book; you’ll be glad you did.``- Mark Matlock, Youth Specialties Executive Director, Author of Real World Parents
``As parents, we find ourselves living on the “digital frontier.” Like the pioneers who crossed the country to settle the Wild West, every step we take into this new technological landscape moves us further and further into uncharted territory. Figuring out how best to navigate the journey for our kids and for ourselves is not an option for parents; it’s a necessity. Right Click will serve you as a wise and valuable tool in your digital parenting toolbox.``- Dr. Walt Mueller, President of Center for Parent/Youth Understanding
Many parents don't even know what a ``digital native`` is, much less what to do about them. But this one thing is certain: if you have a teenager, you already have one living in your home. They're so far ahead of most of us on the digital frontier that we need some shortcuts to keep up. Kara Powell, Art Bamford and Brad Griffin offer some of those shortcuts to time-tested principles for not just understanding how your kids relate to the digital world, but also why they relate the way they do. With deep research and everyday examples, they offer today's parents the practical tools they need.- Reggie Joiner, CEO of Orange and reThink Group, author of It's Just a Phase--So Don't Miss It
