It can be challenging for parents to keep up with the fast paced innovations in teen communication. Not only do parents have to deal with instant messaging, texting and Facebook but mobile chat services such as WeChat, Vine Flickr, Instagram, and Snapchat are becoming popular among teenagers.

Ms. Berman-Dry’s presentation will help parents:

• Learn why mobile devices are different from computers.
• Explore different approaches to internet management.
• Learn specific tools for management.
• Understand parental controls and how kids get around them.
• Develop resources for adapting the plan as your child matures.
