Talking To Your Kids About How They Act Online #digifam

I do 100% of my work online. I’m either on a desktop, a laptop, or out-and-about on my smartphone. I’m writing blog posts or posting to Facebook/Twitter/Instagram or hosting a Twitter party. When I’m not online, I’m in the car driving kids from sports practice to Cub Scouts to swimming before heading back home....

Sponsored: Organizing Photos of a Special Birthday Party for a Special Guy @Tapsbook

Sponsored: I was compensated to write this post. Something happened this spring that has never happened before. I’m still kind of reeling about it. I did something I have never done before.
