I have 17 and 10 year old sons, as well as,  an 8 year old daughter.  They are a huge part of the reason  I want to further develop my knowledge of social media.  I want to be able to help guide them appropriately through the digital age, so that they are aware of the strengths of living in a digital world, but also understand the weaknesses and dangers.
