Social Media and Your Child

“You are what you post. Proper netiquette makes you a good user….”
David Chiles

As students move up through their years, they tend to get more focused on their peers and how to find more ways to fit in and connect.  Technology and social media make this easier and easier. It is important to make sure that you are up to speed with the type of technology and social media your child is using.  With smart phones, tablets, laptops and gaming systems it can be tough to keep up, especially if you are not a native to those types of systems or sites.  Here is an article that I wanted to share with you that might help you understand some of the sites that are out there.  The post comes from Common Sense Media which is a website dedicated to helping parents, students and educators make the web a safer place.  They also give you lots of information on movies and television shows so that you can make educated decisions on if they are right for your child.  Check out this article for more information.
