Helping Students Navigate Technology

Image

The world is changing. Technological upgrades are coming at a faster and faster clip, and there doesn’t seem to be any sign that the progress will slow down.  As technology shifts, students continue to stay on the cutting edge while parents fall behind on knowing what is available.  Part of being a parent today is working to stay current with what your teenagers are exposed to.  With that in mind I commend the following websites:

Parent Tech Guide: They are the authors of the handout I gave to parents at the youth parent meeting
CPYU: A great site that can send you weekly updates
The Source for Parents: Another handy resource to check out.

I hope you put these resources to good use.  Also, feel free to talk to me about any youth culture questions that you might have as well.  Let me be a resource for you, as well!

Super Bowl Sunday

We had a great time at the McDuffee’s home for the Super Bowl watch party.  We had a good group (over 20) students show up and watch the game.  The students took the opportunity to show off how much they knew about football and how good they were at predicting the outcome of the game.  Several of the students showed considerable knowledge/luck on the quiz.  We ended up with a 2 person tie (so much of a tie that they even tied on the tiebreaker!) and so the grand prize was split between the two winning youth (both of which were girls!).

A special thank you to the McDuffee family for hosting us, feeding us hotdogs, and not losing it on any of the youth as they chased the dog or spilled red soda on the rugs! You guys are awesome!
