Scott will share his journey of parenting in a world where our kids often spend more time on their cell phones than talking with us!

From a non-technie point of view, and knowing there is no one-size-fits-all-solution, let's talk about the wisdom of monitoring youth cell phone activity using a few methods available to parents. We'll also talk about the importance of a parent-kid cell phone contract and strategies for creating and maintaining mutual trust.

Please, bring your ideas and your cell phones! We will break into smaller groups to share experiences and discuss options. Help your family maneuver online through social media in a smartphone world and share ways to keep help keep our children safe.
