Hmm…Interesting…Smart Phone Apps and Teens

As I was reading Rediscovered Families on Facebook this morning. She had a very interesting link to an article called 4 Apps Teens Love that Parents Need to Monitor

I am a parent to teens and have never heard of the Apps mentioned in the article. It is kind of scary,  the things that kids and young adults are doing with these apps. I feel compelled to share this article with you. Please take the time to read the article, share it, and talk to your teens. I know it has raised some questions for me and I will be having a sit down chat with my teens about these Apps and others like it.

I want to keep my kids as safe as possible in a world that is technological advancing faster than I like.

I should probably mention that I do not agree with spyware on the kids phones and computers. I believe in open communication with my kids about the risks associated with certain behaviours on social media.

Just when I thought I had it figured out, it all changes again!

I hope all of you are enjoying your Christmas break, I know that I am enjoying mine. 🙂
