I was 8,” read one testimony of a young child. “A smartphone is not a rite of passage for kids. It’s a portal to the world, a world we need to prepare them for,” noted seminar presenters Adam and Angela Shaw. 60% of 10-11year-olds have smartphones today.Do you know what your child is viewing on their smartphone or computer? The Shaws say the seminar will be full of many practical tools to help parents in protecting, preparing and propelling their children to not just survive, but thrive in this digital world.The seminar is free, but presenters are asking that everyone register at the website, because they will be providing a free booklet with helpful tools, and they need to make sure they have enough books to give out. Due to the nature and frank discussions in the seminar, anyone over the age of 18 is invited to participate.For more information, go to or @ParentingInADigitalAge, or you can call 407-299-6311.
