Congrats to Bridgett! Email me your address and I'll send the book your way!

Tuesday night I had the privilege of helping with Vicki Courtney's Logged On and Tuned Out event at our church. Those who were there were encouraged to parent their children in the technological realm. It just amazes me to watch this (which Vicki showed at the event and which she posted on her blog back in January) and hear that the girl's dad thinks it's fine because "it doesn't interfere with other activities" -- in spite of the fact that she washes dishes with one hand and texts in the shower! Vicki addressed cell phones and social networking sites and ended with a Q & A session.

I always love working the book table when I have the opportunity. And I had the presence of mind to pick up a copy of her book Logged On and Tuned Out, which Vicki autographed just before she left, to give to one of you! Just leave a comment on this post and tell me which area causes the most concern for you: 1) cell phones and texting 2) the potential for sexting and/or cyberbullying, or 3) social networks like Facebook. Continental US residents only, please. Please respond by 10:00 a.m. CDT tomorrow (Friday, May 1) and I'll draw a winner.

BTW, Vicki is giving away TWO of her hot-off-the-UPS-truck 5 Conversations You Must Have With Your Daughter Bible Study/DVD Kit on her blog right now! Check it out!

Happy Reading and Discerning Parenting!

Thanks, Linda. I just went and entered. I love Vicki's stuff, even though my daughter is only 3. I figure it's never too early to start!

I love Vicki too!

I'm worried about sexting and cyberbullying.

I have a 13 year old and although she has a cell phone she is not allowed texting or to send or receive pictures.

I am more concerned about the cell phones and texting. My son has me as a friend on Facebook and so far, it has been a better situation than when stepkids had myspace. Much more controllable for us. But cell phone? hmmmmm
