Mobile Device Etiquette For Parents And Kids

“Call me when you arrive so I know you arrived safely,” my concerned parents used to ask when I was a kid. That phrase presumed that the check-in would occur from a destination landline. Today, for a growing number of kids, a check-in might occur via a text message, an email, Twitter, Facebook or Foursquare — undoubtedly via a mobile device. Parent and child check-ins can be active, passive, public or private. For better or worse, the ubiquity of mobile technology is introducing new conveniences, expectations, responsibilities and challenges for parents and kids. To bring clarity to these unchartered waters, we dedicated the latest Cast of Dads podcast to sharing views, strategies, practices and fears. My toddlers don’t have mobile devices yet, but I know that day is not far off.
