1/1/15 update: FOSI recently changed the name of A Platform for Good to Good Digital Parenting. This article and links have been updated to reflect that change.
Baffle That Bully! co-author Amy Jones Anichini wrote an article recently about the ripple effect of positive communication for A Platform for Good (now called Good Digital Parenting) – a division of the Family Online Safety Institute (FOSI). You can read the full article here:
It’s amazing how what starts with just one person can spread. Today, try to improve your relationship with someone (your child, your spouse, a friend or co-worker) by giving that person your full, undivided attention, asking relevant questions, and communicating in a more positive way. Then, watch the ripple effect.
It can be pretty powerful!
If you haven’t checked out FOSI, make sure you do. Here’s what we love about this organization:
- They offer tools to help parents teach their children how to be good digital citizens.
- They share stories about how people have used technology and social media to make a difference or do something good.
- Like Baffle That Bully, they are focused on solutions.
We are big fans of the following solution-driven tools (contracts you and your child sign when they receive a new tech device), because they also emphasize positive communication:
Wishing you a day filled with positive communication, both online and face-to-face.
