Hello! My name is Bethany and I am an elementary teacher. I am currently taking a special education course called Students with Special Needs. I am trying to learn more about how to best educate my students that have special needs. I was hoping that maybe some of you could help enlighten me. I am hoping to come out of this class with a whole new understanding so that I can make the utmost difference in each of my student's lives. I just have a few questions. First, I was wanting to understand the effects of your child's disability on your family. Next, I was hoping to learn more about the collaboration that you have with your child's teacher. Also, if you have any other suggestions that you would like to share with me I would greatly appreciate your feedback. Thank you so much for helping me be a better a teacher.

At her age, it's reasonable to make her add you as a "friend" on Facebook (or to give you her password), so that you can be a part of her experience and see her activity. You should also sit with her to set her privacy settings, only allowing "friends" to view her information.

Set time limits on her usage, and if possible, put the computer in a common area so you can easily monitor time spent.

Allowing your child privacy is an important part of growing up, but it is something she can earn after proving to you that she makes smart decisions, and that only comes with age. Visit this article for more tips:

Good luck!
