Be the Goldilocks of social sharing, and other advice for the next generation

(Continued)

I hope that my daughter and her peers can learn from the mistakes of those who have gone before. As clueless as we parents can be about these things, let's try to guide our children to be their genuine and best selves online, just as they are in the "real world." 

Children are, if only in our fantasies, an opportunity to right the wrongs of our lives. I realize this manifesto says more about me and my own failings than it does about my generation. So be it. I still wish these things for all of our children, and believe they would help make a better society for us all. Who's with me?
