We can’t stop our kids from an exciting world full of experiences. But at the same time, parents know the risks their kids might face- online and offline. There are many campaigns working to make parents aware of the dangers of Internet and why online safety is vital for teens. Such activities are very helpful, but parents also need to know how to make the Internet safe for their children. And this is exactly what this article is all about.

Restrictions can ruin your bond

Yes, it’s true that getting afraid of dangers online is natural but it doesn’t mean you should go for making the matter even worse. It’s very important to stop cyberbullying, pornography and teens’ access to adult content but not at the cost of sacrificing your bond with them. Children today have become far more smart and assertive than we used to be in our childhood. So putting restrictions on them or trying to confiscate their mobile devices because you caught them browsing something adult is not going to work out on them anymore. So instead of being a helicopter or an over-protective parent, you need to come with a solution that is mutually accepted and beneficial.

Try innovative parental monitoring

Healthy solution to this problem is going digital! If everything is becoming digital then why not your parenting style? But what is digital parenting? Does it involve some robots or machines? Nothing like that! In fact digital parenting implies that parents can make use of the mobile gadgets their kids hold very dear to their advantage.

So yes, you can connect with your children through your smartphones and can digitally keep an eye on what they do online.

For this, FamilyTime Child Locator is an app with a new idea and innovative approach to monitoring. Look at the features of FamilyTime you might find it helpful.

Tips to Help You Save On Your Grocery Bill

by Janell on June 22, 2015

Tips to help you save on your grocery bill

I feel like I am at the grocery store a few times a week. I have got to get my act together and do a better job grocery shopping. I know what to do but I need to implement these tips in my own life.

The first thing I need to do is make a meal plan and stick to it! When I make a plan, I make a grocery list, and then I don’t have to go back out to the store to pick up a few more items. I use the items I already have in my house and I avoid buying extra things if I don’t have to make a trip back to the store.
