Teens in high school are exposed to and use technology every day. Computers, phones, tablets, cameras, 3-D printers, laptops, and interactive white boards are a part of high school curriculum. They have no choice but to engage with and keep up with technological advances. Helping them understand the place of technology in their world, how they relate to technology every day, and what purpose technology should have can help open the conversation. Asking your teens about their emotional relationship with technology by talking about how they feel before they picked up their phone, how they feel when they are on their phone, and how they feel after may be a good starting place for you and your teen. Talking about instances of use for work, education, and pleasure is another way to help them gain some insight and awareness of how much time is spent with technology. Helping them identify their values related to socializing by technology as their only method of social interactions is another area to address when it comes to technology use.
