Worrying before it happens?

12 Sep

Surely every parent does this. Your kid says something daft at home and you worry that she’ll say it at preschool and OMG what will they think?

Then it gets worse. You read an article like this one and wonder “What will technology be like when my kid is in her teens? Will she be safe online? Will she be savvy enough to know that people lie their pants off when they have online anonymity?”

My only hope is to stay up-to-date myself, to help DD build up her own image and confidence and common sense so that she is the best and most resilient she can be. And a healthy dose of scepticism now and then doesn’t hurt.
