Parents, Teens, and Internet Safety

A fun-filled presentation on internet dangers, social media, and online privacy.

This is an online version of a presentation I gave at my high school alma mater. The presentation discusses internet dangers, social media, and online privacy issues for both teens and parents. Some of the dangers in here I have personally lived through with my teens. Others, I am grateful that I have not experienced them.

My hope is to give a balanced view of internet safety so that parents and teens can see eye to eye on keeping each other safe.

Check it out and tell me what you think in the comments.



Budgets: Don’t go shopping without one

Monthly_BudgetSo, how much money do you have in your checking account? Don’t know? Well, what about the balance on your credit card? Or how is your 401k doing? If you can’t answer any of these, then it’s time to get your finances in line. If you don’t have a budget, or know where your money is going, then how do you if you can afford that trip to the Bahamas? Where’s your plan to get out of debt or to pay off your student loan? It’s time to open up that spreadsheet program and get to work. Or if your more old fashioned, break out a ledger pad. If you need help starting one, check out this article.
I personally prefer to use an online personal finance program. My reason is that I can check my account balances from any computer: home, work, my sister’s. If your interested in that route then here’s a list of the most popular ones out there now. you can also check out this page for a longer list of personal finance web apps.
