Raising Confident Daughters Day 11: Talk Tech

Posted by   + Show Post

Does your daughter have a cell phone or spend time online? Take time today to discuss technology.

Talk about cyberbullying, sending photos, de-friending and sexting. To many moms and mentors, these terms may seem like a foreign language. To girls, however, these words represent a new concern that they have to deal with daily: digital drama. Girls' self-esteem and confidence can be impacted immensely as they navigate social media and contend with these issues.

Check out A Girl’s Guide to the Digital World for tips and information!

Have you talked to your daughter about being respectful both offline and online?

My oldest is the only one who's REALLY into the computer and she only does these sites she got at school..a math site mainly. But, she knows how to be respectful and to never bully.  The computer is in my room and she is only on it when I am right there.

My daughter will start going online more now that she us older and is responsible enough and knows enough about what is okay and what is not okay to do or for others dealing with respect and boundaries, etc. My other children do not go online at all.

I don't know what to put here cause my dau doesn't get online much and doesn't have a phone. But we did talk about being online and safe. I did teach her how to work the computer.
