Does your teen want to be a surgeon? James Rosser, a laparoscopic surgeon in New York requires his medical students to play 30 minutes of video games before beginning surgery. Rosser noted that when his students did a warm-up on games, they made 40 per cent fewer mistakes.

Video games far from being mindless entertainment or the cause of youth violence, can in fact help teach our teens to build successful futures—but only if we think in new ways about learning itself.

Games can help teens learn to think like engineers, urban planners, lawyers, journalists and other innovative professionals, providing them with the tools to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing world.



Spend quality time with your cyber-savvy teen!

Young people today are digital. They belong to a generation that thinks differently. For them, technology is like the air they breathe. It is a fact of life. Engaging with your teen will equip you to engage with the future.

However, you do not have to be a geek parent to get involved and enjoy the amazing world of cyberspace with your teen.

Teen Time puts you and your family at the head of exciting game changing ideas such as social media, cloud-based information and gaming. Teen Time helps to create a family computer culture using social networking, exploring the newest trends in information technology - and best of all, making the fun of gaming a valuable learning tool for your teen’s future.

As you travel through cyberspace, you will learn how to innovate and develop critical skills and creativity. You will learn how to avoid cyber hazards such as fantasy addiction and cyber predators through helping your teen to make informed choices.

Teen Time offers tips and advice that can be applied to almost any family situation, such as family dynamics and family bonding.

Teen Time offers parents proven practical solutions that really work. The digital generation gap will be a thing of the past as your whole family takes control of the cyberworld around them.


I loved this book.

It offers a wealth of information for parents who want to take a proactive role with their kids in the age of cyberspace. While taking seriously the risks of the digital age, Fr. Gascoigne opts for a more constructive and creative approach. He recognizes that the positive potential of cyberspace is at least as important as the dangers. He provides a wealth of interesting information to help parents get up to speed. At the same time, he provides a faith and values orientation by which to deal with contemporary culture and provide wise, engaged parenting.

I highly recommend this resource!
