Not all social apps are bad. Most of the apps our kids use are truly an extension of your child’s “real world” social life. For the most part, our kids talk to people they only talk to in “real life.” With the influence of technology in our kids social lives, we can’t panic or over think every single thing, but we do need to empower each other and be aware of what our kids are doing when they are online and engaged in these apps.
We are in a digital era and our kids are now the ‘digital kids’. We know how mischievous children can get especially with their gadgets. In this regard, parents should be a step ahead of the mischief. With so many apps and online games, it becomes hard to monitor the kind of content our kids consume. Parents should however try and familiarize themselves with these apps.
In this webinar we discuss the most popular apps teens use right now and what you as a parent / teacher / guardian need to know about them...
ATTENDEES: Who is this session for?
This session is for anyone that has an interest in the apps that teens are using right now! Parents, teachers, guardians, grandparents and anyone else who might be interested.
