Don't Blame Social Media if Your Teen Is Unsocial. It's Your Fault

Don't Blame Social Media if Your Teen Is Unsocial. It's Your Fault | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
If kids can’t socialize, who should parents blame? Simple: They should blame themselves. Teenagers would love to socialize face-to-face with their friends. But adult society won’t let them.

Twitter Safety: Keeping young people safe on Twitter | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Twitter is popular with everyone but due to the very open nature of Twitter younger users should take extra caution. Remember everything you post to Twitter with an open profile can be seen by anyone in the world and is very easy to search for.

Teen 'like' and 'FOMO' anxiety | Social Media | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

FOMO: fear of missing out.


The quest for the '100 club'

The teens and tweens also agreed there is a constant -- and at times anxiety-inducing -- fixation with likes.

"People will be like, 'Oh, are you in the 100 club?' " Sadie said of getting 100 or more likes for a post.

Two Faces of Perfectionism | Psychology Today

Two Faces of Perfectionism | Psychology Today | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

On the surface, striving for perfection in the things we do is a good thing. It helps us plan, organize, strategize and achievegoals. But there is a flip side to perfectionism that can harm children and teens as they journey through their school years.


How should parents and educators help kids understand their perfectionist tendencies so that doing their best doesn’t drag them down?

I think it's more like a continuum - one person's high standards and eye for detail is another's negative nit-picking.  Thr trick is to get colleagues to tell you when one is in danger of becoming the other.

What parents should understand about technology...

 

Raising children in a technology-infused world is more than understanding the ins and outs of Facebook, Twitter, and computer games – or about the digital habits of teens. It’s about understanding the relationship of technology, popular culture, and child development. Taylor brings these deeper insights to readers in an easy-to-read, well-written format that is sure to benefit children.

 

The key for every parent is to facilitate a healthy, balanced relationship with technology – being aware of its pitfalls and helping children integrate media into their lives in positive ways. This is the message of Taylor’s book – and is well worth the read!

Why parents should educate their kids about tech

Why parents should educate their kids about tech | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

"For parents trying to raise kids and give them the technology to be successful, yet also protect them, there's a sense that no one's there to tell folks what steps to take," said Marian Merritt, Internet safety advocate at Symantec.

 

But laying the responsibility for teaching digital citizenship solely at families' feet would be a mistake, Warren said. "It also has to be a part of ongoing education," she added, noting that kids as young as 2 now commonly use smartphones and other technological devices.

 

"I hope schools are distributing information and educating (families), ===> but ultimately, parents have a huge role to play (in the process)." <===
