We live in a world where technology plays a huge part in the lives of our youth. One piece of tech that is a blessing, but also dangerous is the smartphone. I don't know how many of your students have smartphones, but I wanted to challenge each of you to know what kind of apps (applications) your teens have on their phones. Here is an article informing you of the 7 most dangerous apps for your teens.
Please keep in mind that some of these apps are bad, but they can be abused. When you see it your teen's phone, do not overreact, but inquire and ask them what they are using it for and who are they communicating with? If they can't give you a straight answer or want to hide something then I would be concerned.
