Extremely relevant for this day and time. Students need these tools to help them discern the information they are being bombarded with and then effectively communicating safely and reasonably. Students must understand the the internet really is "FOREVER"! Thanks.
Very useful and timely information regarding our teens and how they communicate, what they are seeing/exposed to , and how to carefully navigate these current trends.
