Welcome to Parenting Bytes! Rebecca Levey, Andrea Smith, and Amy Oztan are in the studio today talking with Kate Canterbury, from The Guavalicious Life, about an ugly incident her daughter had with some mean girls, and the epic Facebook discussions that followed. When do you step in and when do you let the kids work it out? We’re also talking about how to deal with teenage (or parent!) cell phone data hogs, and kids and money in general. Plus our Bytes of the Week!
