Transcription: 
My two children, ages 7 and 5, challenge me every day with parenting. And the most important thing that I do every day is to make sure that I’m constantly having a dialogue with my kids and that when I say something, I actually follow through with action. And that when I create structure round for my kids, whatever we’re doing, that I follow through with that structure every day. I listen to my children and even at times when it’s uncomfortable I let them do things, because I know there is a balance between letting them go, but then trying to keep them safe. And so I think it’s really important when I think about kids and technology that there’s these misconceptions that you have, or these ideas of what you think as a parent of what technology is and then what your kids think of technology. And you take yourself a little bit out of your shell and you reach out to the children and you look at their perspective and you find that harmonious duality between engaging them, but yet giving them structure, so they’re safe.
ALL PARENTS, Parenting

Jonathon Fishman

Technology Expert

Jonathon Fishman is passionate about technology.  Not for what it does, but for where it can lead you. The idea for his company, Ben’s Ranch, struck Jonathon when his stepmother asked his advice in buying a computer for her grandson. She didn't care about the brand or specs, she simply wanted to know how it would help her Grandson.  Jonathon realized that technical support was centered around rescue, repair and complicated conversations. He believed that the conversation should start with how does technology empower the use. Ben's Ranch became the industry standard for personal and small business IT by shifting the conversation repair to usability. Jonathon is happily married and the father of a seven-year old and a nine-year old.
