"It's complicated" can describe many of our relationships with others, both romantic and otherwise. Add digital devices and social media to the mix, and things get complicated even further. Help your kids take the first step toward building healthy and rewarding friendships and romantic relationships, both online and off. In this video, kids listen to other teens' thoughts and feelings about having and maintaining boundaries in friendships online, in a world of being constantly connected. Video Link: bit.ly/olyRCv2

Family Tip #4 (Secondary): Develop their instincts Help kids learn to trust their guts so they can suss out creepy, risky, or otherwise unsafe online situations. Playact a few scenarios: What if someone asks to take a conversation private? What if someone asks for your phone number? What if someone invites you to a private chat room? Be aware that some kids (even "good" kids) will explore iffy stuff online out of curiosity. But the minute they feel uncomfortable, they need to shut things down.
