The Family Online Safety Institute (FOSI) will be launching their new Good Digital Parenting initiative at their 8th Annual Conference in Washington, DC on November 12th-13th. The program seeks to empower parents to confidently navigate the online world with their kids. As part of the program, FOSI is releasing a comprehensive set of resources including instructional videos, blogs featuring expert commentary and a practical toolkit of downloadable materials to support those on a digital parenting journey with children of all ages.
Additionally, FOSI will release a new study entitled, "Parenting in the Digital Age" to explore both the opportunities and challenges presented by raising technologically savvy kids.

I'm co-authoring a book about baby boomers through the decades, Once Upon Our Times:65 Years Growing Up Baby Boomer. It includes history, cultural events, family lifestyles, nostalgia, personal memories of boomers through the decades, plus many photos and illustrations.
Comparing today's parents with my role having 2 babies in 1976 and 1978, where I had absolutely no knowledge of how to parent and treat kids (other than common sense) versus today, where I understand there are many types of parenting classes, I would love some comments or expert advice for our book. There's a vast difference from reading Dr. Spock and raising kids with knowledge and insights.

Are you concerned that the Declaration of Human Rights is not taught or practiced in schools?
