A version of this article first appeared on Scary Mommy. Seems appropriate, yes? Even though our tweens are from scary, seeing their 'lil faces glowing from their phone screens while their thumbs fly across keypads ... yeah, that could definitely inspire some fear!

So while their typing fingers are faster than yours and mine and their selfie game is definitely spot on, there are a few things that us moms can teach our tweens before their posting habits get too deep. Here are 16 of them.

Admit it.

You’re tired.

All those after school triggers fueled by not enough coffee, churning out dinner, and managing your child's iPad time … It's all just about to do you in.

And just when you think you’re about to get a big break? A chance to sit down for the first time today, peek at Facebook, sip your grapefruit La Croix — along comes your Mini Me asking for another show / another app / another YouTube video.

And you’re starting to wonder, Is this what it’s always going to feel like?

How do other parents do it?

How do they have the energy?

Well, I have a little secret for you:

Not all moms are running this rat race. In fact, some of them are actually taking this digital age pretty slow, enjoying the ride.

Yes, I said enjoying.

And I’m excited to let you in on exactly how to enjoy it, too, first-hand.

That's what what we're going to dig into today.
