Well Mom's and Dad's, we have survived our first week of school. I pray that all went well on the first day and throughout the week of the school year. This is just the beginning! My daughter has hit the milestone of being teenager, and I was scared out of my mind. I was ready to walk my daughter to the front door and she stopped me dead in my tracks. "No mom! That's embarrassing, I can do this my myself!" This has been since the six grade so I am used to it. However, with all that we are dealing with in the world, I was compelled to hold her hand and let her know "I am here with you all the way!"
Keeping The Kids Safe!
If your child or children have cell phones, stay up to date on all the latest chat apps so that you know what they are up to and what they are doing. You want to monitor who they are chatting with and what they are chatting about. Ask your local phone providers which apps are good for parent monitoring. Not all providers have the same apps or monitoring programs.
