#1 Don’t give your children smartphones.
It’s crazy to think that a decade ago, smartphones were uncommon. Many people didn’t even own a cell phone. Now as they are common This has given rise to cyber-bullying and a spate of suicides, sexting and sexual exploitation of teens by teens, and the nearly non-stop viewing and amateur production of pornography. Teenagers and children are pulled into the social webs woven from Facebook to Instagram, from Snapchat to a half-dozen other underground cyber-settings, the interactions and content curated only by the children who populate them, free of parental or adult supervision.
