Janell Burley Hofmann of Sandwich, a parent coach and mother of five, is celebrating the launch of her book, “iRules: What Every Tech-Healthy Family Needs to Know about Selfies, Sexting, Gaming and Growing Up” published by Rodale, Inc.
Ms. Hofmann was interviewed on “Good Morning America” and has a weekly spot on American Public Media Marketplace, NPR, as tech etiquette consultant. Her book offers practical advice to help keep children safe.
The book launch will take place on Friday, May 2, at the Sandwich Town Hall from 7 to 9 PM. Tickets for the event are $30 per person or $40 per couple and include a copy of the book. Reservations may be made at www.titcombsbookshop.com.
Hors d’oeuvres will be provided by Fiddlestix Catering and a cash bar will be available. Live music will be provided by Brian Sances.
In “iRules,” Ms. Hofmann educates parents about the culture tweens and teens enter the minute they go online, exploring issues like cyber-bullying, “friend fail,” and sexting, as well as helping parents create their own “iRules” contracts to fit their families’ needs.
