ITA #24 – Hope for the Weary Mom, Kids and Social Media – An Interview with Stacey Thacker

By December 18, 2013General

StaceyThackerToday we are chatting with Stacey Thacker about her books Hope for the Weary Mom and Being OK with Where You’re At and we also discuss how we are navigating teens, tweens and social media.

Note that we recorded this interview in early September, that’s why we mention the hot weather and my new puppy. I’m happy to report I get much more sleep than I did when I recorded this episode. I know you care. Thanks for asking.

You’re going to love the wisdom Stacey has to share, so grab some headphones and join us for a chat!

    Hi, I loved this interview and I love this podcast, it has been such an inspiration.
    I was wondering if you had any resources that could link up to the technology course that was referenced in the interview? I am looking for hand’s on activities that would educate students about how their social media interactions can impact their future.
