Guiding our kids into their fast-changing futures.

Is Mobile Making it Impossible to be a “Helicopter Parent”?

The short summary of these two great posts? Stop monitoring, start mentoring. With the explosion of mobile phones and tablets finding their way into kids’ hands, it’s becoming almost impossible for parents (or schools, for that matter) to continually monitor the activities that are happening there. USA Today reports that the latest round of free apps (like Kik and Snapchat) and and sites that our kids are using to connect are making Facebook look like, um, fax machines.

And Anne Collier at Net Family News makes the finer point that while the “mobile trend makes it a lot harder to hover,” that’s mostly good news “where healthy kids are concerned.”
