'beta' means the developmental stage where they're just working out the final bugs before a full release. windows calls this the 'insider program'. sign up at 'insider dot-windows dot- com'. apple users - go to 'beta dot-apple dot-com' and register there. android users.. look for the link called "early access" on the front page of the 'play store'. and snapchat lets android users try out features before anyone else. follow the link at snapchat dot-com slash-beta to register. remember, because these are in the beta phase, they might crash on you sometimes. [b03]decoding texts bryan parents, we've found a new way to keep an eye on what your teens are texting. as our 'jeff thelen' shows us - it may just keep them out of trouble.. and save their life. from texting to social media to getting the forecast or the news... it's all about the phone grant and lillie grace faulkner/ senior and freshman "actually more like all the time. it's probably the first thing i do when i wake up and the last thing i do before i go to bed" julie faulkner/mother of three "the kids need to know that what they're saying and sending is going to be out there for all to see, so i tell them to be smart and be responsible." "there is something to be said about instilling good judgement in general." psycholigist brian weiland counsels teenagers and adults. he says parent need to learn all they can about texting and social media then talk to your kids. dr. brian weiland/psychologist "don't talk so much about the appropriateness or inappropriateness that's gonna make you seem out of touch. what you wanna do is focus on concrete dangers. the long and shor term effects." "as parents in this new age of technology, we cannot keep track." titania jordan is the chief parent officer at bark dot u-s. it takes that eye you keep on your kids a step further. for about 9-bucks a month, the cyber watch dog keeps track of what teens are texting and their social media posts. sending parents an alert if it catches any signs of cyber bullying, sexting or worse. titiania jordan/bark.us ""i don't need to know if my so is using the word fart and talking about stinky socks. but if he's saying kms which means kill myself, i want to know!" k-m-s is certainly scariest red flag of them all. but there are dozens of other slang terms kids are using in their digital messages. g-n-o-c means get naked on camera. c-u-f-6 is see you for sex. and kids sometimes just don't grasp the impact of that stuff, and stuff like naked selfies that are even worse. "i don't think in those moments they're considering how those things can become public. the faulkner teens do seem to get it. and they don't mind the idea of their parents having access to their cyber world. nearly as much as they would mind losing to mom during family game time. "it's a little intrusive, but they are our parents and they want to look out for us. you shouldn't have anything on your phone you should have to hide from your parents."
