I’m feeling my way around in the dark with raising my teen, but I’m committed to making it a learning experience somehow. I’ve learned a lot so far about not only about my teen but about myself as well. I’m online all day and often into the hours of the night so some might say I’m pretty web savvy too. It's a daily challenge for me to keep up with my teen in terms of the newest communications tools available and keeping her safe. I often write about internet safety, keyloggers, mobile spy applications, social networks, computer monitoring, parental controls etc or any other new tool that my teen has adopted. My goal is to explore ways to parent a teen successfully while still keeping a good line of communication open in today’s digital world. I’ll share my experiences with you as well as any research I uncover about raising a teen in today’s digital world. Wish me luck.
