Technology use among children and adolescents is growing at an astronomical rate. Think about how many parents purchase their children smartphones, gaming systems, iPads, or other digital devices. With access to the Internet, these devices allow children to connect to others in ways we never could have imagined. With the proliferation of these devices comes concerns about cyberbullying, screentime, digital citizenship, media literacy, and exposure to inappropriate content. For parents, keeping up with their children's use of technology can be a daunting challenge.
