    Review:

    I was quite impressed with Plugged-In Parenting: Connecting with the Digital Generation for Health, Safety and Love. The fact that you have devoted this kind of focus to the issue of digital technology as it relates to the parent/child relationship is amazing in itself. I liked how you wove the PET- Parent Effectiveness Training philosophy and skills throughout the video. I thought you made a very good case about respectful relationships and what makes them work. You made a very credible and strong case against punishment and an effective case for problem-solving instead. I especially like your focus on influence and how parents gain and keep it and how they lose it. That's a powerful message. --Linda Adams, President, Gordon Training International, Parent Effectiveness Training, P.E.T.
