Protecting Your Loved Ones

The internet and other forms of social media have built bridges all over the world.  Technology has spread to even the most remote parts of the world, which allows people to connect and experience things they otherwise would not have had the chance to do.  The downside to this bridging is that it opens up your home to criminals from all over the world.  Your home is supposed to be your safe haven from the world outside but the internet has changed all of that.

Teens are often the target of a multitude of scams because they strive for independence but lack the wisdom to make safe and responsible decisions.  As parents, we want to watch over their shoulder as much as possible but it just isn't practical.  We want to trust our kids and give them a little latitude to make decisions but at the same time, we worry.  A key logger is a great way to keep an eye on them without them even knowing that you're watching.  You can monitor everything they do on the computer and they feel as though they have established some independence.

Even if they try to avoid your prying eyes, you can utilize a capture password device that will let you see what they really don't want you to see.You can even monitor their whereabouts when they are away from home with a teen driving tracking device installed in your car.  You can know in an instant exactly where to find your kid.  This is a big help to law enforcement personnel in the event you ever need to call on them for assistance.

The world is a big place, especially for a teen.  Help them out a bit and get some peace of mind at the same time.

TinkerBel Socks Recycled

I recycled Ms. Burrito's used TinkerBel socks instead of throwing it.  I used it to cover the  disinfectant wipes and the  wood polish cleaner.  Ms. Burrito said "Awe, that is cute MOm!"
TinkerBel's hair matches the lids of the containers hehehe.  What do you think?

Charles Robert Darwin #CarnegieScienceCenter

We saw this  display at Carnegie Science Center honoring Charles Robert  Darwin, a scientist who is responsible for establishing the fundamental principles that underlie  modern biology and bitechnology.  There is an interactive  screen that you can touch and ask questions and it will give you answer.  It's pretty cool.

Frozen

My daughter watched this movie at a theater twice already but she wanted to have a copy of the DVD so we bought one from the money she won at a talent show.
We watched it last Sunday and it was  like  the first they watch it.  It was m,y first time watching the  movie as I did not go with them when they watched it with their Dad.  I thought that it's a really good movie for the whole family.
How about you, have you watched this movie with your kids?

Technology has been tremendously evolving as the years pass by. It is true that technology brought light and convenience to the people but then there will always be the occurrence of unexpected flosses. No person is considered perfect as well as with technology. Technology has its own advantages and disadvantages.

Technology brings fun and excitement especially when the Social Media Networks came in possible. The people had embraced it fully and accepted it like it was the greatest gift that they ever received. Social media is very useful since it helps people in far places to connect and interact with their loved ones without spending a lot of money for air fare. You are socializing with diverse people and you are opting to learn something new regarding culture and traditions.

But then social media is also impacted with negativities and can really spoil social life. Why do they say so? Yes! Social media really connects you with people but then it is the one that is disconnecting your thought to the real people that surrounds you. You are beginning to leave the world of reality and you are more referring more of the virtual world.

It is one of the factors that bring stress to a lot of people especially with teenagers. Teenagers now tend to forget their real friends and sometimes it is the cause of unhealthy lifestyle. The more you stick with your computer and the more you use it, there will come a time you be forgetting on how to live your life in a normal way.

You cannot hide the fact that millions and millions of people now are into social media networks. Even if you are against this, you cannot remove to the people what they feel whenever they are using it. They see it as a fun and enjoyable thing to do.

The bottom line of this discussion is that nothing in the world will be negative if you know how to handle and manage a certain innovation in the right proper way. Just like social media, if you know your limits in using this mode of communication, then you are considered as a good user. You are maintaining a good lifestyle and especially you are not forgetting the real people that surround you. Love your life more!
