As previously discussed on this blog, social media is something that may have consequences. The use of social media is a necessity to the new generation of students and therefore they are at the most risk. Because of the young ages that begin social media use, it is important for parents to take action and provide caution with their children.
Fellow blogger, Alexis Lane tweeted about an article by Alexandra Pannoni, she discusses the actions that parents may be able to take in order to prevent their child from potentially threatening their future. The first step in helping your child understand their actions is open communication about the different scenarios social media could cause. Showing general interest in the social media apps that your child is using may be able to cause them to think more consciously.
