Came across this interesting article from Mashable written for parents to raise awareness about group texting, which is the preferred form of communication for many teens and preteens. Please note that while the content of this article is suitable for all viewers, some other parts of this website might contain questionable content. We encourage parents to…

cyberbullying

We do not have specific statistics for FRCS students’ experiences with cyberbullying, but a new study from Pew Research Center shows that 59% of American teens report having been bullied online, and a great majority of teens (90%) believe that it’s a problem. One encouraging  statistic from the study shows that 59% of teens also…

Came across this article, Protecting your social privacy, from the University of Michigan and wanted to share it with our community. It’s a great reminder on the steps to keeping your social media accounts private as well as the reasons for keeping them private.

In 2014, Mashable published an article “10 Things You Didn’t Know You Agreed to via Terms of Service.” It shouldn’t really surprise anyone that some of these clauses exist, and others might be very surprised by a couple of them.

There is a lot of misinformation and misunderstanding about sexting—​the act of taking a nude selfie and sending it to someone else—​amongst teens. It is a scary concept for parents and one to which many teens think parents “way overreact.” Some experts say it is a normal part of teen “sexual exploration” while others fear it…

​Yesterday, Mashable posted another article written by a teen, this one entitled “I’m 15 and Snapchat makes me feel awful about myself.” Like their other articles written by teens, this should not be taken as a representation of all 15-year-olds; it is an opinion piece written by one teen. It’s a chilling look into what a great…

Last March, I wrote a blog post on internet slang. As a communications person, I find language fascinating and am intrigued by trends in how we communicate with each other.
