We are coming up on my favorite time of the year, Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving is the perfect time to sit down with your student and use the internet together for something other than gaming. Why don't you think about starting a family blog? Two free, and easy to use websites are Google Blogs and Weebly.com. Beginning in November, your family can set aside some time each week to compose a post together on things for
which you are thankful. By building a blog together you will spend quality time with your child in "world" they are very familiar with. They can probably teach you someting! Plus you will have the perfect opportunity to talk about online behaviors and your expectations. If you do create your own family blog, please share it with me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. See you in cyberspace!
