Hoagies' Blog Hop: Parenting iGen

Parenting iGen, the video game generation. What does iGen entail for kids and parents? What's the same? What's different? How can we "step up" our parenting game as we parent (or grandparent) the iGen generation? What does the research say?  (Which generation did the research, anyway?) 

Don't miss our previous Blog Hops on related topics, including Balancing Boredom & Burnout, Mysteries of the Brain and Giftedness: Just the Facts.

The moment that we as a species truly crossed over into true “digital life” is generally marked as 2008, when the iPhone was introduced, since it was the first smartphone to achieve significant market saturation and thus connected millions of people to the internet — and to each other! — anywhere they went.
