Incase you aren't aware of snapchat adding a new feature called snapmaps please take the time to find out. It is basically a stalking function but it is very accurate and will show which building your child is in and what they are doing eg listening music, travelling in a car, etc. Please encourage your child to engage "ghost mode".
I certainly feel via social media they share enough already and they don't need to know what everyone is doing every minute of the day they need to be growing and living life! ... See MoreSee Less
PARENT ALERT!!!! If your child uses Snapchat you MUST watch this. They've introduced a new feature SnapMaps and it's truly frightening what it does. Please SHARE and TAG any parents with kids who use Snapchat in the comments this to make sure people are educated about this! NADIA & KAYE UPDATE (4th July 2017) We cannot believe the response to this post – OVER 20 million views and counting. Snapchat have now issued a statement and we are very pleased to include it here…..”The safety of our community is very important to us and we want to make sure that all Snapchatters, parents and educators have accurate information about how the Snap Map works. With Snap Map, location-sharing is off by default for all users and is completely optional. Snapchatters can choose exactly who they want to share their location with, if at all, and can change that setting at any time. It’s also not possible to share your location with someone who isn’t already your friend on Snapchat, and the majority of interactions on Snapchat take place between close friends.” We will be posting a follow up film highlighting how to enable the Ghost settings on SnapChat and will be discussing the implications of SnapMap for youngsters and parents alike.
A Mighty Girl Pick of the Day: “Life in Motion: An Unlikely Ballerina - Young Readers Edition” by Misty Copeland. This new adaptation of Misty Copeland's bestselling memoir tells the story of the star ballerina's incredible rise from poverty to the pinnacle of the ballet world in a version accessible to middle grade readers. When a 13-year-old girl from an underprivileged family stepped quietly into her first ballet class, no one could guess how quickly she would show phenomenal talent. But as she rose through the ranks of her field, she faced two very different challenges: a chaotic home life that threatened her new place of comfort on stage and racism within the ballet world. Copeland had to learn to stand up for herself and navigate complex relationships, but the rewards were worth it: last year, she became the first African American woman to be named principal dancer in the 75-year history of the American Ballet Theatre, one of the world's premier classical ballet companies! Her story of finding an unexpected dream and making it a reality will inspire any young person, and dance aficionados in particular will thrill to read about her rapid rise in both technique and fame. While this young readers edition doesn't shy away from the harsh realities of Copeland's early life or her experiences confronting discrimination during her career, her inspiring message about defying stereotypes to achieve your goals will have broad appeal with many young readers.
