Growing up in the technology generation can be tricky for kids who now have to navigate their lives online, but raising those teens can be even tougher on parents.
Dr. Larry Rosen, a psychology of technology expert said, "Whether I'm talking to U.S. parents, or parents in India like I just did, or Hong Kong -- you name it -- they all have the same concerns. They worry about their future ability to communicate because they [children] spend so much time in the virtual world, they worry about their ability to think deeply about something because they're constantly distracted."
Bill Root, a parent and GISH coach, said he and his wife Brenda Root have been monitoring their children's lives for more than a decade. "I'm the same way with the players as I am with my kids -- they have to speak with good purpose on twitter and Facebook. We could go in and look at their accounts, I think that's up to parents because kids can get upset and say things online while not speaking with good purpose."
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, computers can be found in more than 75 percent of American households.
Computers have gone from an expensive luxury to a household necessity and the number of computers per home is growing.
Bill Root said their household had one desktop computer several years ago, but now "it's all wireless we have iPads, iPhones, and a couple of laptop computers."
Bill and Brenda Root have four kids in the iGeneration and Net Generation and say they all began using computers at a very young age.
The parents also enjoy advances in technology. Bill Root said, "I think there is a time and place for it."
