Screen Strangers


"This game is so cool, Mom. Like, right now I'm playing against Emma from my class. She's on here at the same time. She just wrote, 'Hi' to me."

"I didn't know you could talk to each other on that. Are all of your friends on that game kids from your class?"

"There's a couple of people on here that I don't know who they are."

"You can't play a game that allows you to have conversations with strangers, Bob."

"Because they might be creepy people?"

"Exactly. There are creepy people who will pretend to be your friend and bad stuff can go down."

"That's scary. Did you hear about that on the news?"

"And other places. Show me your friends on the game, honey, and we'll get rid of the people you don't know."

"Definitely. I don't want to be on the news. Not like that."

  1. It's frightening, isn't it? I'm like you, all screens take place in front of me. They'll be on their own soon enough and I want to plant that seed of vigilance while I have them.

  4. Good post. I learn some thing tougher on distinct blogs everyday. Most commonly it really is stimulating to learn to read content material from other writers and exercise a specific thing there.
