Trendy Teen Apps

Trying To Keep Up With Your Teen

Are you able to identify any of the apps listed below? If I were to ask your son or daughter, I would bet that a majority of them would be able to tell me the name of every app listed below. I picked these apps to share with you because they are very popular amongst our students right now and I want you to be an informed parent.

Tonight would be a good time for you to sit down with your child and take inventory of the apps that are on his/her devices, whether it be a personal device or school issued. Encourage your child to go through apps that they are utilizing in school. Ask your daughter to demonstrate how she is using them. Ask your son to show you what apps he is using to interact with his friends, otherwise known as social media. Look at the images on the camera roll on all devices. Look at their Instagram photos, watch their Vine videos, follow them on Twitter. Most importantly, I encourage you to check devices on a regular basis.
