It’s been said that one of the many wonders of social media is the ability to bring those furthest from us closer to us.
However, there is another side to this coin. By misusing social media we could have an adverse effect.
Unguarded Facebook and other social media sites can actually drive those who are closest to us further from us.

Our kids need help in discerning where this line of demarcation is. Left unchecked, a myriad of tragic scenarios are possible.
One way to protect our kids is to have unbridled access to their Facebook accounts.
