Demystify Your Digital Life

Reminder: When you pick up your device in front of your child, do your writing and editing out loud.  Set the expectation that digital communication requires thoughtfulness. 

Speak Up and share your thoughts about how you communicate online.  Talk about the Thumbs Down skills you are using.  For example, as you draft an email or text, comment out loud on why you picked one word over another. Contemplate if what you are writing would be better communicated offline. You can also consider out loud if you should wait to post or send something.
