Are you feeling lost in raising kids in a digital world? (Me too!)
I’m Andrea and it is my passion to help today’s families tackle the real issues in raising kids in our techno-saturated daily lives. After talking to hundreds of middle schoolers about staying safe and kind online through my social media managment compay for schools #SocialSchool4EDU, I realized that many of these students could have used the talk much earlier. When I looked for a children’s book addressing this topic – I couldn’t find one. Not one!
My book series tracking The VonAwesome Family is my attempt to get the conversation started within our families. Not only will the themes covered start a conversation with your kids, they will lead parents to do some self-reflecting as well.
I’m not a perfect parent – not even close! I need the advice in this book just as much as every other family out there.
