What Age Should A Child Be To Get A Cell Phone
It is so hard to know exactly how to talk to kids about social media because no one ever had this talk with us! But there are specific things that we can teach our kids and students about social media before they are even online. This is a detailed checklist or lesson plan of the conversations that we can start having with our kids about social media now. This feels so much easier to do and more effective in these small steps rather than waiting for a big talk. I really like this approach!
