Should parents stalk their children online?

Microsoft researcher and New York University media and culture professor danah boyd (who prefers to style her name in all lowercase) is one of my favorite people to talk with about teenagers and technology, writes Emily Bazelon of Slate. In her Q&A with boyd, they explore how devastating and destructive parental anxieties and stress about technology can be. These anxieties continue to create a wall between kids and parents.

Boyd’s new book is It’s Complicated: The Social Lives of Networked Teens (Yale University Press, February), which offers interviews with teenagers in communities across the country. By filtering them through her distinct lens, she gleans valuable insights.
