Children and Technology: The Truth About Social Media?
I had a conversation with my 11 year old daughter, Shelby about Hurricane Irene last night at dinner. What she had to say made me giggle, and showed me that while the information age is great for spreading information, sometimes we need to make sure the info picked up by our children is accurate.
Here is a snipit of that informative chat:
Me: Wow, 10 inches of rain is no joke.
Shelby: They even had to evacuate New Jersey, the whole thing. That’s alot of people.
Me: No sweetie, not all of New Jersey, just the Jersey Shore.
Shelby: (with a big smile): Oh, that’s okay. They are all in Italy right now, anyway.
So there you have it. My daughter, the holder of all important news. *giggle*
