Advice for parents who worry if kids are spending too much time on Facebook

Rebecca VanderMeulen just wrote an excellent article on titled Is Your Child Spending Too Much Time on Facebook? She interviewed me for the story along with Monica Vila, founder and Chief Technology Mom of  The Online Mom.

I’m not going to quote VanderMeulen quoting me, but I will point out a couple of questions that Vila asked, “is she isolating herself from family and friends so she can log onto Facebook,?” and “is she spending a lot of time in her bedroom by herself.”
