This is a sweet old photo, of a girl using a very old looking telephone. I don't think I've ever seen a phone like that one before! I've included two versions for you to play with, the original and one in blue.
And speaking of telephones.... I've been selected as a Blogher compensated LG Text-Ed Ambassador, much to the shock of my family, and especially my teen step daughter, the queen of texting, who responded with, "Are you serious?! You can't even text!". Truthfully, I can text a tiny bit, I'm just a little slow. At any rate, lucky for the people at LG, I don't need to know how to text, Blogher has people for that... smart experienced texting type people, who will be doing the actual teaching, and I get the fancy title! So anyway here's, the scoop. This is a great program for parents of kids that text message. The program helps to educate parents about texting and about various ways to combat negative behaviors, like bullying, gossip and sharing inappropriate content. Each week for the next 6 weeks, a different topic will be covered. This week's topic is "Mobile Meanness". There will be five posts written each week about the topic of the week. And here's the great news, for each comment left on each post, a $.50 donation will be made to the wonderfully good people at DoSomething.org. (which is a great site about getting teens involved with volunteering)!!! You can see read all of the posts HERE and leave any questions that you might have, or your own expert advice for those of you that have dealt with this issue.
