Preteen Texting and Sons Who Like “Girl” Things.

The Big Disconnect: Protecting Childhood and Family Relationships in the Digital Age / RAISING MY RAINBOW: Adventures in Raising a Fabulous, Gender Creative Son

Scrolling to the bottom of Sunday’s Book Review in last weeks New York Times offers insight into the adventures and challenges of Parenthood.

THE BIG DISCONNECT: Protecting Childhood and Family Relationships in the Digital Age

“Parents more interested in checking their email than helping their kids with homework. Babies anxiously “swiping” magazines as if they were iPads. Preteen girls texting pictures of their undeveloped breasts. In “The Big Disconnect,” Steiner-Adair, a psychologist, paints a bleak picture of how families interact with technology, arguing that our disengagement from real life is interfering with babies’ brain development and wreaking havoc with intrafamily communication.”

RAISING MY RAINBOW: Adventures in Raising a Fabulous, Gender Creative Son

“Duron has two sons: sports and Lego-loving Chase, and princess-obsessed, sparkle-covered C. J. She has taken what started as a blog about raising a son who likes “girl” things and turned it into a heartwarming, though wrenching, tale of slowly accepting her child’s difference.”
