Excellent Article in Woman's Day Magazine in September 2011

There will be an EXCELLENT article in the upcoming September 2011 Woman's Day magazine. It's an article about how to handle a couple of tricky tween/teen situations. As parents, we all want what's best for our children and to keep them safe.

The article covers 4 situations that face many tweens/teens in todays world.

1. "My 13 year old wants a Facebook account but I don't think he's old enough"
The article explains why teens are not caught up and ready to use current technologies and if you do allow your teen to have a Facebook account, how you can protect them and what red flags to look out for.

2. "My 14 year old daughter wants to start dating. Is that too young?"
The article explains how to talk to your daughter about what exactly dating means to her and that for most 14 year old girls, they are generally too young for dating. It further explains at what age most girls are ready, how to slowly let your daughter gain responsibilities with dating and what to do to keep her safe in one on one situations that may be tricky for them when it comes to boys.

3."My son posted a video of himself on YouTube. Should I worry?"
The article explains how to keep a child safe on YouTube and that generally, it's okay for them to post videos on there because it helps with creativity and other skills. There are settings on YouTube that parents should be aware of though. Read the article to find out more.

4. "I found a "sext" message on my teen's cell phone. What should I do?"
The article talks about how common this is among teens(more common than you might think!) and how to deal with the situation if faced with it. It has a few suggestions as to steps you can take to deal with the situation currently and to make sure it doesn't happen again in the future.

I read the article and while I don't have a tween/teen as this point, I found the information in it excellent. If you have a tween or a teen or a child who is just getting into  social media/internet/technology, this article is a MUST READ!!

Disclosure: I was sent the article to read in advance from a PR rep at Hearst Magazines. No compensation was received.
