These days it’s hard to be a responsible digital parent, when technology is changing so quickly. We struggle to get through the day, let alone keep up with all the new tools, sites, and apps being developed — along with rapidly changing texting lingo.
The most recent 2013 Pew Internet Teens and Technology Report states that 95% of U.S. teens use the Internet, 78% have a cell phone, and 47% have a smartphone, meaning that technology is well-integrated into our lives.

Let’s face it — we’ll never know everything, and our kids will probably always be half a step ahead of us, but here’s a quick list of the topics that should be discussed in every home in an age-appropriate way to ensure that everyone is digitally responsible.
