When Your Tween Wants to Conform to the VSCO Girl Trend

Press

Article by Jackie Ashton for the New York Times:

Mimi Ito, a cultural anthropologist who studies teenagers and technology, said parents should try out the technology kids use and consume media together. "It's really clear from the research that the best way to have a positive influence on kids once they enter the teenage years is to really listen," Dr. Ito said. "There's a generation gap," she said, "parents didn't grow up with this technology." And yes, your teens may roll their eyes at you. "But more times than not, they will appreciate that you're taking an active interest in the things that they are excited about."
