Now, this is a tricky concept … we all know that our teens and younger children are obsessed with social media … hey, us adults are too … but we also know that there is a big dark underworld out there that we need to protect our children from. As they get older, however, it is less easy to have a grip on how safe they really are … and it is definitely less easy to keep asking what they are doing and who they are chatting to if we are to continue to have any degree of a relationship with them.
So, this leads to the issue of how do we keep our pre-teens and teens safe on social media whilst respecting their privacy? This was a question posed by another mummy blogger for me to discuss with Sarah and Jayne, talking therapists from BE Integrative Therapy who specialise in pre-teen and teen behaviour. Sarah and Jayne have been kind enough to join with me to discuss many issues surrounding teen behaviour for my vlogging series so I put this question to them in a further vlog which you can see below. They give some excellent points and things to look for and discuss with our children which can be applied to all ages of children who are on social media.
I’d love for you to take a look, let me know your thoughts and comments and I hope you find it useful.
As always, if you have a question you would like me to pose to Sarah and Jayne, please drop me a message and I will let you know when the topic is discussed and when it goes live.
Thank you so much for watching!
