When the kids are young, there are toddler issues – daycare, preschool, play dates, creating a solid social base for a successful kid life with small introductions outside the loving embrace of the family home. It’s about stability and routine. Then that loving embrace becomes an extended family of friends. And there’s no doubt that the extended family of one’s peers has a more powerful influence over a parent’s good advice. Where does social media come into play? According to a recent article from TheGuardian.com, it’s parents’ biggest online fear. Losing that control over your child is a natural part of parenting but a scary thing nonetheless. Sharing inappropriate content or oversharing is rampant since a good online reputation is not on the forefront of a teenager’s mind.
Is your child really at football practice? Is she studying or playing online games?
