Books: Vermont professor pens book on parenting in a digital world

It's easier than ever to share family moments on Facebook, but Champlain College online marketing professor Elaine Young says you might want to ask your kids before posting. "When you put that picture of their art project on Facebook, the little ones are so excited with the likes," she says. "But as they get older, if you're not asking permission, people are having major family meltdowns." A South Burlington mom with a teenage daughter, Young has been watching closely for the past 13 years as the digital world has evolved. She recently collected her insights into a new book, Tuned-in Family: How to Cope, Communicate and Connect in a Digital World, available this month from the Champlain College Publishing Initiative. This family manual aims to help parents talk with kids about issues such as privacy, sexting and digital identity. What's not to like about that?

'Tuned-in Family: How to Cope, Communicate and Connect in a Digital World': Self-published by the Champlain College Publishing Initiative. Find more information at tunedinfamily.com.
