How much technology is too much? And a favorite question of my kids, How old do I have to be?
This is something I wrestle with constantly. It's a whole new ballgame for parents today. Used to be you could teach stranger danger to your kids and it covered every person that walked within their scope of life. Today their scope is widening and most predators can hide safely behind a monitor or a microphone and neatly behind the profile of an innocent child their own age. My kids know not to give personal information willingly online, but look at me like I'm crazy when I explain how they can easily baited into giving this information without even realizing it.
This is a on going battle in my house and since there are endless topics, I'd like to start discussing technology and teens weekly.
Join me next Tuesday for the first part of Tech Teens, when I'll start with the subject of age. How old should a child be before allowing full access to the virtual world?
I look forward to hearing your thoughts and opinions on this.
