I have a corollary question to the spring break blog from AJC reporter Jill Vejnoska. Jill is wondering how parents are using technology to monitor their kids’ safety on spring break?
Are they secretly/or obviously checking their teen’s Facebook photos and Twitter feeds to make sure nothing bad is going down? (As we said before they can block their parents from certain Facebook photos even if they are “friends.”) Do you think they hold back knowing you’re looking?
Are you having your teen take photos of where they are right then and sending it to you? (A mom and Y told me she makes her teens do that. I love that idea.)
And finally, what are you going to do with the knowledge that their competing in wet T-shirt contests – tell them to be good over the cell phone? Drive down there?
So are you keeping track of their safety or their behavior via technology and if so how?
Also if you would like to be featured in Jill’s story you can email her at Jill.Vejnoska@ajc.com.
(There are two spring break blogs today and a third topic will pop up around 1 pm. Be sure to see the list of the safest and worst spring break spots. )
