Connecting Families

Connecting Families is designed to support and empower families in raising kids who think critically, participate responsibly, and behave ethically in their online lives.

Digital Drama

When it comes to discussing social media, it’s important that adults and kids speak the same language. What grown-ups think of “cyberbullying” might be explained away by kids as “digital drama.” But it’s not trivial. Digital drama brews in the offline world and simmers online when kids feel emboldened to say or do things that they wouldn’t face-to-face. Checking in with kids and observing them as they interact with technology can ensure your conversations are productive and helpful.
