Parent Connections: Social Media - A Review in Tweets!
3/24/2015 • Parent Connection • Written by Beth Smith
Great advice from Sarah Brooks in the FUMCR Parent Connections meeting over Parenting in a Social Media World! #strengthincommunity
A parent’s job isn’t to watch your teen's social media like a hawk. It’s to help them navigate life and make good decisions. #parenting&socialmedia101
Kids come home from school with their friends in their pocket. Their social life doesn't end. #hardtobeakidtoday
Teens are not going to set boundaries. You as parents must set boundaries for them. #parentingisnotforsissies
Set Private accounts on your kid’s social media. #strangerdangerisreal
Establish that you will always have access to your kid’s social media accounts. #goodparentingnotbigbrother
Create tech-free zones/times (do not let teens have their phone overnight with free reign and wifi) #kidsneedsleep!
Turn off notifications (notifications pull you back in) #constnatinterruptionsarenothealthy
It's not an app problem but a teen problem and you know how to talk to your teens. #keepthedialoguegoing
Thanks FUMCR for bringing another wonderful speaker to your Parent Connections Series!
