Adolescents on Social Media – A Guide for Parents
Social Media (Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat etc) and how to best parent our adolescent kids as it becomes more and more a part of their lives is still a relatively new frontier. The good news is with a little knowledge and some sound advice, parents can make a big difference in guiding teens to keep their online interactions safe and positive whilst avoiding potential pitfalls.
We would like to share a video with our parents presented by youth worker and cyber safety advocate Jamie Roberts who will provide a brief overview of the more common social media platforms that young people are using. Also included are tutorials that explore the main privacy settings on Facebook and Instagram. It is vital that parents have a basic understanding of what privacy settings are available in helping their children avoid sharing personal information with strangers.
