Today's Cool Site...

What are your children saying?

I always stress the importance of monitoring your children's computer usage. You want to know to whom they talk online.

You also want to know what they're saying. Unfortunately, that's easier said than done. Slang is constantly changing.

So, what if your child uses unfamiliar words online or off? You could ask your child what they mean. That's probably the best approach.

But maybe you don't want to do that. In that case, I recommend Urban Dictionary. It contains millions of slang definitions.

Visitors can add definitions. That means it's constantly updated. So, there's a good chance you'll find the word you need to know!

As you would expect, there are plenty of foul words on Urban Dictionary. Many of the words and ideas will offend you. But you need to know what your children are saying.
