While sitting in a meeting last week, a girlfriend of mine had a pressing issue she wanted to discuss.
She talked about her son on (video calling) recently with two girls who were together at a sleepover.
The girls were in little tees and pj’s, playfully talking into the camera to him.
Now granted, the kid is in Grade 5, and I’m sure it’s all pretty harmless at this stage.
But, jump ahead a couple of grades, and this can become a real serious issue. That often means allowing kids the room to falter, make mistakes, and then troubleshoot their way to a solution on their own.
In this instance, that could mean laying down the rules, and then allowing your children to handle this new technology on their own, and hope they do it responsibility.
