Social Networking for Teens
For many legitimate reasons, social media is often number one on a parent's list of digital worries. From predators to privacy, there's truly a lot of iffy stuff for teens to navigate. While all of that is true, using social media wisely can also give teens a sense of connection, fun, and creativity. If a caregiver is involved in a teen's digital life, preps them for how to handle negative online situations, talks about protecting privacy and being kind, it can go a long way toward a more positive social media experience. And if kids can avoid endless scrolling and comparing themselves to others, and instead focus on friendship and creativity, it may actually give them a boost instead of bringing them down.
