You can shelter your kids from everything or teach them as you go along.
We may live most of our lives from a spreadsheet, but everyone knows what is for dinner, whose laundry day it is, and whose week it is to clean the bathroom.
It works for us! No worries, we sneak a lot of fun in between!
Communication really is key. We have lot's of conversation in our home and no topics are off the table.
We keep a close check on all of our kid's social media accounts, internet search results, and viewed content.
We use a myriad of apps to keep up with our life! DropBox, GroupMe, FaceTime, ICloud Family Share, etc. They all help us to keep our kids safe and to communicate with them!
Organization is a must. We have a list of spreadsheets from laundry, chores, ride schedules, outings requests, etc. This helps us keep track at all times.
This is huge! We do not give our kids free reign over their cell phones. We have rules and they know their cell phone will be the first to go.
Yup, we track their every move. We also teach them what to do in the event of the unthinkable. You can never be too prepared. Have fun with drills, draw escape plans, set meeting places, create a keyword. Personalize your family's plan!
