Many young people today are attached to their phones, devices and especially their social media. The truth is, technology is not going way, we need to help our children to navigate the digital world safely and respectfully. Just because we are behind a screen doesn’t give us a right to be mean or inconsiderate to others. ReThink the Internet is the perfect guide to help young people manage their online world.
