Resources for Today's Tech-Savvy Parent

Parents today are faced with many decisions about technology and media and how they will parent.  This can be a challenge for adults who did not grow up with the same media and technology that their children are exposed to.  This resources page is not meant to suggest any single parenting choice or strategy or what is best for any single family.  Rather, it is a list of resources parents may explore if they are searching for information about parenting in a tech-savvy way!
