Parents have a lot more to deal with in the current culture than our parents before us.  Technology via mobile phones have invaded our lives.  And it can be downright scary with games that allow total strangers to chat our primary school-aged kids up!  With all the games that are out there, it’s hard to keep up with what each does and allows.  Really… it’s quite impossible.  Parents ultimately need to have a good relationship and be watching what their kids are playing and how they are interacting and of course… have open communication about the do’s and don’ts.  For #FamilyFriday we are sharing this link about a tip to help parents of teenagers….
