Teens and Social Media
Facebook, Snap Chat, Twitter…the list goes on and on. How can parents guide their kids through Social Media? Dr. Tony DiBiasio, Child & Adolescent Psychotherapist and Professor at Baldwin-Wallace University, joined us to share his advice.
1. Establish Ground Rules
Rule # 1 = No Facebook for kids under 13.
Rule # 2 = Use a Family Computer
2. Make use of filtering software
3. Limit cell phone use in the home — perhaps an Electronics-Free Hour?
1. Check their Privacy settings — set them for younger teens
2. Know your kids online habits – be aware
3. Monitor pictures your teen posts on line
Educate Yourself and your Teens:
1. About online dangers and online reputations
2. How to be smart online — teach them what to avoid
3. Educate yourself about the technology your teens are using
- Know the language – and the sites most frequented
- Stay at least 2 steps behind your kids — that my be as close as you’ll get just try not to fall further behind!
Keep in Mind:
A basic rule of thumb for all parents is to model appropriate use of social media and cell phone use in the home, and in the car. Children and teens will watch and recreate what you do much more assertively than what you say!
