“” – a program that kids use on social networking sites to create a personal quiz for their peers to complete. It’s popular because it’s supposed to answer the question “How well do you know me?” Mostly innocent with multiple choice questions like “Who is my favorite athlete?”. But we always want to look for the silent message, what goes unsaid and that impact. For example think of questions like “Who is the prettiest girl in our grade?” or “Who is my best friend?” How does it feel if you aren’t listed as the correct answer or are excluded as a choice all together? These moments can sting for tweens and teens. But if we are present and in tune, we can help guide our children through these mixed feelings.
