This new book from Dr Bex Lewis promises to offer excellent advice to parents as they help negotiate the digital world that their children live in. Helping us to “enjoy the best and avoid the worst’, Bex’s book promises to be a fresh, sensible guide to anyone wondering how to help their children connect well with the internet and beyond.
I have met Bex several times and she has advised us here at the diocese more than once on good engagement with social media etc. She speaks each year at Greenbelt and other major Christian festivals. I’m looking forward to getting my hands on a copy!
