Kids don’t occupy their time the same way you did when you were their age, and you have technology to thank for it. Smart phones, tablets, snapchatting, and tweeting – what does it all mean? If your grandchild is using social media and apps, it is important that you understand how to use it so that you can help keep them safe online. Here are few helpful resources worth checking out:
- Understand online dangers
- Millennial Grandkids 101
- Implement ways to enhance safety
- Start a conversation about online usage
- Embrace and respect the Digital Age
With all the different options available to socialize online, it can be a bit confusing. Check out some of these resources, and next time you see your grandchild absorbed in technology (which is probably right now), show your interest and ask them to show you the ropes. The two of you can laugh together as you navigate this new digital world.
