  1. Blended and Step Family Parenting
    I saw this company "fambam" made a social media network solely for families. I think this will be a great way to introduce younger children on how to be safe online and will be a great way to stay connected with family members in other states. It's only for your family! It's not ready yet but I...
  2. Toddler & Child
    If you can't keep up with the social media apps your tweens and teens are using, you aren't alone. And if you're worried about online safety, you're not alone there, either. My first introduction to the World Wide Web came via floppy disk, technology that isn't really that old (really!) but...

    Parents often walk a tightrope when it comes to allowing their kids online and social media access. While some sites and apps raise alarms, other platforms can offer students social and academic benefits. Here's how students can positively incorporate technology and social media into their...

  7. Baby
    When I told my single friends I was pregnant so many begged me, "Please don't let your Instagram and Facebook be taken over with baby pictures." I reassured them, "I wasn't going to be that kind of mom." But sure enough, when our bundle of joy arrived, I was guilty of a newborn filled...
  8. Family Life
    Keeping the time you spend online healthy and balanced can be a daily challenge. How can we keep connected while not letting virtual relationships take over our real-life relationships? Do you spend too much time with your attention directed at a screen? If you are a mom like me, keeping the...
  9. New Member Introductions
    Hello Everyone, I am new to this forum and hoping that someone can help me out or direct me to a site or forum that I could visit. I have been searching online for a site that helps individuals who are not the actual parents. My niece is 15 years old. 6 years ago my sister and now ex...

    Hello, I am a single mother of three teenagers (2 boys and 1 girl) and I am conducting a study for my senior project on parental understanding of cyber bullying. The goal of my study is to gather data that will help provide useful information to teachers, school administrators, and parents...
