1. Become familiar with the games and apps your kids use the most. Check out the rating, privacy settings, and chat features, for sure.
2. Have your children play in shared spaces, the living room, the kitchen, etc., where you can keep an eye on what they're doing.
3. Talk about technology. Play with your kids and have them show you what they play! Make sure they know to come to you or a teacher if something inappropriate should ever come up.
4. Set limits for tech time and model appropriate, balanced technology use.
