For Parents: Helping Middle Schoolers in the Digital Age

With so many new technological developments it can be a challenge helping a middle school  student maneuver their way through  the problems that arise in the digital world.  Common Sense Media is an excellent resource for parents.  There are reviews on the age appropriateness of movies and apps, tips for social media use, guides on smart devices and more.  Check out the website https://www.commonsensemedia.org/

Click on the Parents Need to Know section for articles like “How to Set Parent Controls on Netflix” or “Star Wars Age by Age Guide.”  Topics can also be broken down by age group.

If social media is of a concern, go over the Family Media Agreement with your child. It contains great guides and tips to help your child become #LifeReady with his or her digital tools.  Together we are training Rolfe’s students how to be responsible digital citizens.
