Today’s Web 2.0 Family faces new issues but in an electronic form; many of them able to leap from the depths Cyberspace right into the bedrooms, living rooms, work rooms and marriages of our daily lives. No, not all things social media are bad. This digital generation of children and parents face challenges none before have known. There isn’t a manual yet written for how to face some of the modern issues facing families today–and besides, it’d be in a .pdf readable on one of the various 3,800 different forms of mobile devices if there was.
After reading The Bible, Gary Vaynerchuk’s Crush It!, Max Lucado’s Fearless, Timothy Ferriss’ The Four-Hour Workweek, Bob Burg and John David Mann’s Go-Giver’s Sell More and John Eldredge’s Wild At Heart there is a new sense of adventure in the heart and soul of DaddyClaxton. But it’s a reasonably structured sense of adventure, all falling under the conditions of the Value Centered Living lifestyle highlighted below.
Each day the news media fills the airwaves world wide of another man or woman, teen or child who has been caught sexting–sending sexually explicit photos of themselves or others across the Net. The consequences for such activities are boundless and long-term. Once something’s on the Internet, it’s there to stay.
At DaddyClaxton.com we’re greatly concerned about Net Safety and raising awareness about the issue of sexting. There are a series of blog posts alread in our Categories section that you are welcome to read and quote if helpful.
The stories come in often, too, about this new form of abuse, bullying online. Already there have been some headline grabbing suicides caused by this issue. Teachers, parents and students need to become aware of the signs of this issue before the next child takes their life.
