About This Episode

Social media is here to stay and most parents are not equipped to deal with all the nuisances that an institution as temperamental as this one creates. But there is no need to panic! Being proactive and providing a good example for your children will give you a place to start. Take the time to teach your kids about the benefits and dangers of social media even before they own a smart phone and be courageous in your own use of social media becoming the healthy role model they need to see. After all, “kids have never been very good at listening to their elders but they have never failed to imitate them” (James Baldwin).

  • Make your children aware that social media can make them less social. So institute the no phones at the table rule.
  • Set the privacy settings on their phone where “friends” and family must first be accepted before they can view their stuff.
  • Ask your children what their handles are and talk to them about safe handles that do not invite predators.
  • Don’t use the phone while you are driving. Be a good example.
