Spent last week in New York (as part of an Advisory Council for Symantec's new efforts around internet safety
) focusing on how technology has become such a central part of our kids' experiences these days. My take: where there used to be two different discussions -- one about internet safety and one about parenting --today it's really just parenting. The web and connectivity (chat, text, social media) are that integrated into our kids lives.
It's also why I was interested in this blog post describing one mom's experience with her daughter and how her studying and web socializing are merging
. Is that a good thing? Or a bad thing? Or just reality? How are you keeping up with this stuff?
