*WARNING* Creepy Photo Has The Key

The debate on – HOW EARLY IS TOO EARLY TO BEGIN WORDPROCESSING SKILLS? – will never end.  And I don’t know about you, but I learned wordprocessing in high school, typing at home - while in grammar school - and keyboarding, I learned on my own.

When YouTube ‘HITS’ Home

Three months ago, and long before the now infamous, ‘girls gone wild fight’ on YouTube - my brother called me - frantic - because his daughter – my 15 year old niece – was involved in a pretty brutal, physical fight with another girl. She is, however, okay.

Will We Ever Stop Cyberbullying?

While my altruism says yes - day after day it dwindles.  *sniff* I will, however, visit and pass along to you the Stop Cyberbullying and WiredSafety websites if you or your school needs more information on this growing epidemic.  I know this post is redundant, but I’m particularly troubled by the ease at which our young people are using the web and [...]
