Should social media be avoided?
social media does not have to be completely avoided. However, the more
awareness your child is about the potential threats and dangers, the
more protection your child has against the online dangers. Be on guard
when it comes to your teen’s use of the internet. Don't turn your back
to social networking. Get as much education you can to learn the good
and the bad about social networking to give yourself and your child
heads up on what's going on in the social networking world. As I stated
before, social media does not have to be completely avoided, however,
you and your child must be aware of the social media dangers that exist
in order to give your child a fighting chance to live safely.
