Technology & Kids

Navigating technology and kids these days is like a video game! So many different characters, tools, types and ways to play or get lost. For children who've experienced care, the virtual world might seem like a tempting place to find belonging and acceptance. Or, a way to independently seek re-connection with birth relatives, or vice versa. The best antidote? You don't have to be a gamer, technoid or hacker, but it pays to be a well-informed caregiver who models and teaches safe social media use.
