Parents, here is a great article examining the new apps that your teenager may have access to. It’s always a good rule of thumb to show interest in your teenager’s social media life, but here’s a detailed look into what teenagers are texting and sharing online. This article was written in January 2016, so it is current, but certainly not all inclusive of the new apps to look out for. Some of the apps listed in the article may be harmless, but they still have the potential to be addictive and distracting. Some may be an entry for porn and stranger danger. This article is pretty extensive on the different apps out there, but they are definitely things to be aware of. We at 220 Student Ministries are dedicated to partnering with you to raise your child for the glory of God!
