If your kids are old enough to go to school they are probably attending hands on seminars and workshops on the use of the latest phone apps. Not only are they getting state of the art training on the use of these apps, but they are being trained in the art of erasing any data that is unacceptable to their parents. These workshops are free and are conducted by their friends.
 
As you can imagine, some of these workshops focus on how kids can beat the parents in the game of trying to control access to, and use of, inappropriate and dangerous online content and temptations.
 
Unfortunately, the best of parents have neither the time nor the energy to keep up with what the kids are learning and easily fall behind the digital learning curve. So the more we try to control what they are doing, the sillier we look in their eyes and the more motivated they can become to be involved in dangerous activities.
 
What is a parent's best defense of the dangers their kids have access to through their cell phones and computers? It's not our ability to control what they see and do, it's the child's ability to think for him/her self.
 
So the next question is: Where does this ability come from? Parents who allow their kids to make decisions and hold them accountable for the results greatly raise the odds that their kids will do a better job of thinking for themselves when faced with temptations.
 
The more decisions and non-life-threatening risks and consequences your kids experience, the higher the odds are that they will be able to think for themselves and survive what this new world throws at them.
 
Given the level of dangerous activities available to children, there has never been a time in our history when the Love and Logic approach is more important. We used to talk about raising responsible kids, now we are talking about raising kids who are not only responsible, but also capable of keeping themselves safe. We're talking survival here.
