For better or for worse, we are surrounded by technology. We are all becoming more familiar with apps and sites like WhatsApp, Facebook & YouTube and we recognise the benefits of using them to communicate, stay in touch and celebrate each other. However, as well as the positives, social media tools can be used for the wrong reasons too.
Help your child to learn to be informed, use social media responsibly, and make good choices so that they choose to avoid potentially hurtful apps/sites... Check out this post from Common Sense Media for a list of current 'popular' sites to avoid and/or be aware of. For a similar list - and some more great advice for staying informed, have a look at this post from 'Metro Parent.'
