  • Part of the challenge of protecting our children is knowing what they are doing online and being open about this. <br />

  • Connecting with friends through social media has become an important part of developing relationships for a lot of young people. Feeling disconnected from friends if not apart of these networks as lots of things happen here and they do not want to miss out. <br />
