Invitation to the most important discussion about parenting in the history of ever

Are you going to BlogHer this year? Because I'm participating in an event sponsored by BillMyParents, and you should come.

Here's the deal: My esteemed colleague Eden Kennedy and I are, as you know, parenting experts. On Friday, August 5th, at 11:45 am, we'll be hosting a lunch/discussion (I call it a "lunchscussion") with Liz Gumbinner and Kristen Chase, of Cool Mom Picks fame, who apparently know something about kids as well? We're not really clear on their qualifications. We suspect their children are made-up. Anyway, the topic of our discussion will be "Parenting in the Digital Age." We'll be asking them all about whether or not you should tell your children that the Internet exists, and/or when you let your child have one of those "cellular phones" everyone keeps talking about. And then we will determine whether or not their answers are correct, or insane. Things could get rowdy. Liz is fairly diplomatic, but you never know about Kristen. She's scrappy.

In order to join us, go here for more information on how to RSVP. Space is limited, so hurry. HURRY!

I will also be at the BillMyParents expo booth (booth #227) for a couple of hours on Friday, whittling and talking to myself, so be sure to stop by and say hello. Or just throw things at me. (Please don't throw things at me.)  (I'm not sure what my time slot will be, but as soon as I know, my friends, you will know as well.) Eden, Liz, and Kristen will also be there during the conference, and if you visit you can enter for a chance to win a trip to SxSW in 2012.

Full disclosure: I am being compensated (with money!) by BillMyParents for my involvement in this event. The BillMyParents MasterCard is a card you can give your teenager(s), which you can track and control right from your smart phone.
