Praise For The iConnected Parent: Staying Close to Your Kids in College (and Beyond) While Letting Them Grow Up…
"Hofer and Sullivan have done some remarkable work here surveying students and tracking the number of times per week they are still in contact with parents after the kids leave for college. ... One might think then that the iConnected Parent is a sort of cautionary tale warning parents to steer clear from constant contact with their child in a hyperconnected world. Not so. It is simply a snapshot in time showing a strangely evolving phenomenon. Thankfully this book is not all finger-pointing. Barbara Hofer is a psychology professor at Middlebury College, and Abigail Sullivan Moore is a frequent contributor to the New York Times, writing about children and educational issues. As a result of their partnership this book is a well rounded picture, both of research and reporting, a more three-dimensional product than it would have been if either one had chosen to write it independently." --The New York Journal of Books
"[T]his eye-opening text provides vivid examples of iparenting culled from the lives of contemporary college students and their parents." --Publishers Weekly
“How much cyber-closeness with your undergrad is too much? Answers here.” --People
