Parent Portal on Facebook for Messenger for Kids!!

I found it!! In the app site it mentions a Parent Portal and I got to it finally, not by searching help, or by checking settings, or clicking on a link on that page i mentioned, but when I asked my daughter to ask me to add a friend via the app. THEN when I clicked on it, I got all the access to the accounts…prior to that I was going to send a support message to FB but I didn’t once I actually found this…so far it is nice to be able to ‘text’ my 9yo when she’s on her kindle and I need to reach her.

**Next day** Now I see that I also have some of the same access when she messages me just under her name on my phone…

Til next time!! XO – SBTechMa



My Little Photographer

I decided that it was time for me to update the pictures that I have online to introduce myself. Unlike so many people I know, I am not very good at selfies, at least I don’t think so. I was outside and trying to pick a good angle to get enough light, but not too much light when opportunity arrived!

My six year old son came walking up asking me to give him some more time on the Xbox. I didn’t really want to do that, because I don’t want to encourage screen time, and I realized that he would probably be able to help me make a more authentic smile! So I asked him to tell me some jokes…he was cute, but I really didn’t get how “what’s 2 + 2?” was a joke!

Picture wise, he’s got a couple of good ones but it wasn’t quite working, til I asked him if I could take pictures of the both of us!:

I’ve used a few of these since this summer day, and enjoyed working with him to get enough to choose from!
