Most of you (teens) believe that you are paid by the hour for your work, but in reality, we pay you based the value you bring to that hour of work. Dan Clark, a certified speaking professional of the National Speaker Association Hall of Fame in Salt Lake City said it perfectly – “When the value you bring to an hour at work exceeds your pay for that hour, you become a more valuable employee, and as a result, your job may be more secure, you may have more potential to advance in your career, and you’ll have happier, more fulfilling workdays.”

If we define citizenship as the quality of an individual's response to membership in a community, then digital citizenship in a free society must incorporate the value of individual liberty and the capacity to “stand alone” at times.
So when does being “connected” to the network actually bully the individual to give up independent thought? When the intimidation is so intense that there is only one option: “go along in order to get along”.
Eventually independent thought isn’t perceived as an option.

Here’s the thing about our issues with our kids. It is largely about the parent.
As with any other form of leadership, effective parenting that promotes a peaceful and productive home requires integrity and commitment to be the example. It requires discipline, which at first sounds like a ton of time and attention that we don’t believe we have in our hurried, stressed situations.
The simple truth is that we are actually wired to overcome adversity, and the modern family is experiencing a lot of it.
