Reasonable Rules For a Family-Friendly Tech Life

When Silicon Valley mom Jen Rosas’ 11-year-old son wanted more access to the Internet, the family decided it was time to create some rules.

“What we did is write out a contract, and it was signed by both parents and him,” Rosas said. “The agreement was that if any violation happened with the contract on his part, we would close down the accounts to the social media. In addition, we have a strict rule to no electronics past 8:30 p.m. and they may not be kept in the room after that time is up.”

5 Safety Tips for Sharing Photos of Kids

Who wouldn’t want to share that adorable baby picture, the latest accomplishment your kid had, or the incredible new dance costume that won the competition? Your smartphone and tablet applications let you chose where you want to upload your favorite shots — and then what you captured can be posted to all of your social media channels in an instant. 

However, while there are many positives to this new technology, the down side is that it’s also easier than ever for someone to snatch your photo up and use it for their own purposes. Sites are not always moderated consistently, so it’s up to you to keep your photo sharing safe.
