Are spiritual parents uniquely ordained to lead a movement for wiser use of media and digital devices for our children?
Gloria DeGaetano thinks so. In Left to Their Devices…What’s Left? you will find provocative poems and compelling prayers that capture the angst, fear, guilt, confusion, and frustration of parenting in today’s “screen machine world.” You will also find solace and wisdom, hope and inspiration.
Use this book as a personal meditation. Discuss it at church. Share it with your book club or PTA. Show it to a relative whose child struggles with computer addiction. Give it to new parents, encouraging careful future decisions.
Use this book to make a positive change in your life and in the lives of those you love. Left to Their Devices…What’s Left? is a spiritual call to action…from your heart. Heed the call. Take action.
