    A little something to think about:

    It seems like the jobs of parenting just grows and grows. In addition to instilling good manners, good character, a love of reading, gratitude for our blessings, etc., etc., 21st century parents now have to learn how to effectively parent our children’s digital world.   The Family Online Safety Institute summarizes 7 Steps to Good Digital Parenting. You can access this article at https://www.fosi.org/good-digital-parenting/seven-steps-good-digital-parenting/.

    If you’d like to continue this conversation with other parents, please join us for our next Coffee and Conversation (parents talking about digital citizenship) on Monday, January 14 at 9:00 at Skyline. Hope to see you there!
