netsmartz:  This resource for parents and their children of all ages teaches lessons addressing real-life "texting" and "online" issues. These real life stories can be viewed animated for ages 8-12, or short, real-life videos for ages 11-17. This is a perfect resource for students, as the issues they are faced with have been dealt with before by other young people who have navigated their way to solutions from which our children can learn.
