Ah, the electronic age….connected 24/7/365! Isn’t it great to touch base with everyone on your list via facebook, text, email, instagram or old fashioned phone calls? Here’s some suggestions to help your family in the electronic world.
Discuss with your kids the consequences of sharing too much. What goes out on the internet can stay there forever. Future employers and college admission departments are searching the web for info about the person they’re considering.
Don’t forget to discuss “Stranger Danger” on the internet. Institute rules for what they are allowed to share online. Some things they should NOT share are:
When the family is going on vacation.
Phone numbers, addresses, or personally identifying information.
Inappropriate pixs…make a rule that if you can’t hang it on the wall, it doesn’t belong anywhere else.
