Excerpt:

Jennifer Cohen: So all three of our panelists have incredible expertise with teenagers and the role parents need to play in helping teenagers develop and make good decisions about their behaviors. I know I speak for many parents that the rapid advances in technology have created many parenting moments that are beyond what we experienced when we were teenagers, and often times I don’t think we’re really prepared to deal with some of the things that go on now.

There are three main topics that we want to talk about tonight: gaming, cyber bullying, and pornography.
