The iConnected Parent: Are You Making Life Too Easy for Your Teen?iPhones. Email. Skype. In this day and age, keeping in touch with people is almost always just a click, dial, or keystroke away. And this includes your college-aged child.

Hofer, Ph.D., a professor of psychology at Middlebury College, and Abigail Sullivan Moore explore this new phenomenon, and discuss the good and bad of having such easy accessibility.
