My daughter has been wanting to share more with grandparents and our friends, but I didn't want to inundate my Facebook page with her artwork or manage bunches of email for her. She was getting more and more upset about it. I'm certainly not ready for her to be on Facebook. I'm trying a blog as an alternative, and now she is at her own site at CheekyandGreen.com
. I'm right there with her typing as she tells me what she wants to say and helping her post her pictures, etc. I'm planning to be there for every post until she's a teen and even then I plan to be heavily involved.
She wants a cellphone too, but we aren't going there for at least 10 years. And I thought my arguments with my kindergarten daughter were going to center around shoes and ear-piercings!
As my kids enter school, I am not finding life to be as I expected. I miss my 3 little sweet toddlers and life that centered around Little People toys and Wooden trains. A year ago, I never dreamed that this year my time would be spent settling sibling arguments over who has the Nintendo DS Mario Kart cartridge, playing referee to who's turn to do Zombies on the iPad or fighting battles of will over posting photos!
It certainly is a new digital era! How do you manage your kids' access to the digital world?
