Do You Practice Safe Text?

Americans send more than 5 billion text messages every day. That leaves a lot of room for misinterpretation –and mistakes! Mobile messaging, Facebook and other modern communication techniques certainly have their value, but they also have many hidden risks.

From cyberbullying to textual harassment and sexting – bad behavior online is becoming the norm. Shawn Marie Edgington believes in the positive power of technology to connect people of all ages but she says these tools can also be dangerous. She’ll share common sense tips for safeguarding privacy in the electronic age, how to talk with teens about sexting, and ways to teach kids to make smart choices when using social media and cell phones. Edgington has appeared on dozens of TV and radio programs. Her latest book is “The Parent’s Guide to Texting, Facebook and Social Media.”
