Once upon a time, we waited all summer to be reunited with friends on the first day of school. Today, kids are able to stay in good touch with friends through FaceTime, Messenger, SnapChat and a dozen other apps that make chatting, well, a snap. Now that school is starting though, parents may want to transform their kids’ phones into tools for good!
