On BAM Radio Network: The Crisis of Disconnected Teens and Virtual Relationship

I recently had the pleasure of participating in a discussion with Ann Corwin, Ph.D., M.Ed., a parenting expert who can be seen on COX Cable and the Los Angeles-KCET-PBS TV show called A Place of Our Own (now syndicated throughout the US). Along with our host, Dr. Regina Rei Lamourelle, we addressed the issue of whether teenagers today are more disconnected from their parents and friends. Virtual relationships are replacing valuable face time, and this is creating a quiet but growing crisis in which adolescents are missing the critical social feedback needed to develop healthy relationships. This feature on BAM Radio Network explores the root of this disconnect and the threat it poses, and offers advice on how to restore this lost connection. Go to to listen to this important discussion!
