The definition of what Children’s Communities are today is far from the same as any other generation. There is a worldwide communication for the children of the new millennium. They talk and interact with one another globally from very young. They have grasped the world through technology and are putting themselves out there much younger than ever before.
The children of the information age have various levels of communities open to their exploration. The advent of social networking is not lost on the legions of generation next. There are opportunities to work online and the ability to find jobs is a frontier they enter from day one. There are also opportunities in the arts, writing, media and many other areas to the new communities online for the children of today.
Anyone can see how the information age kids are different from past generations, but they still need love and guidance. All children and the communities they build for themselves have this in common. So to understand the children’s communities of today, all adults really need to do is understand the children themselves. Be part of their community when getting to know the kids today. They are not really so different.
