Parenting for the Digital Age

The truth behind media’s effect on children and what to do about it

Bill Ratner


From how to deal with cyberbullying to the strange, true stories behind Barbie and G.I. Joe, media insider Bill Ratner takes an inside look at our wired-up world in a fascinating book—part memoir, part parenting guide—for the digital age. Landing his first job in advertising at age fourteen, Ratner learned early that the media doesn't necessarily have our best interests at heart. His career as one of America’s most popular voiceover artists and his life as a parent and educator gives readers a first-hand look at the effects of digital media on children and what you can do about it.

Bill Ratner is an American voice actor. He is best known for being the voice in movie trailers and for being the voice of Flint in Hasbro’s syndicated TV cartoon G.I. Joe. He reprised the role of “Flint” in episodes of Family Guy and Robot Chicken. In addition to his successful career in voiceovers Bill is a master storyteller—National Storytelling Festival Slam Teller, Best of Hollywood Fringe Festival winner, 8-time Moth Story SLAM Winner, published short story writer, essayist, and playwright. He performs his stories in comedy clubs, theatres, taverns, schools, and storytelling festivals across the country.
