Check out our P/I/K BLOG featuring contributors to Parenting/Internet/Kids (P/I/K).

About Family Blog Lines: Our BLOG explores ethics and privacy matters influencing family life and practices. It explores how the internet/social media enables and disables dreams, daily practices, and relationships. Who’s watching? Who’s talking? How much time are we spending/wasting?

As many of us spent more time at home during the influx of and adaption to Covid-19, we wonder if we have been assisted by social media or become more reliant on it? Have we leaned or caved in? Is authenticity now something we think of as a curated rather than lived quality?

Currently, we are running a P/I/K BLOG featuring contributors to our collection Parenting/Internet/Kids: Domesticating Technologies (P/I/K).

About You: We want guest bloggers: we [might] want YOU! Please contact us to pitch ideas for one- two- three – paragraph op eds that take up issues that arise when family members go online.

And please do leave a reply–after any and all entries. We encourage and thrive on dialogue!

About Us

Ta[l]king Care: Family Blog Lines is authored by Fiona Joy Green and Jaqueline Mcleod Rogers from the University of Winnipeg located on Treaty One Territory, the lands of the Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene peoples, which is also the homeland of the Métis Nation. We are mothers of adult children and are also interested in exploring the ethics of mommy blogging. We all make decisions about protecting privacy, consciously or not. We want to offer space for open discussion and reflection on this decision making process.
