There is no shortage of controversy over many of the most popular apps with kids today.
It doesn't matter if we're talking about YikYak, Kik, AfterSchool, Whisper or BurnBook, kids love using anonymous apps to spill their guts all over the place. Some of what they talk about is good. Some is harmless. Some is just downright disgusting and has no place in our society.
The truth is they are kids...they have no idea what they are doing or the ramifications that can happen and so many parents are mre than happy to put their head in the sand and hope for the best.
Parents have to talk to their kids about what is happening out there. The real world consequences and the things that can have an impact on their children's futures.
