Parents, forget the online bogeyman - The Boston Globe

Parents, forget the online bogeyman - The Boston Globe | web sicuro | Scoop.it
We are both afraid of and afraid for teenagers. We fear the trouble that they’ll get into and the people who will hurt them. This fear shapes our parenting strategies, our educational structures, and our public policy initiatives. Old Longstanding anxieties about surrounding public parks and malls have become modernized as the mere mention of teens’ engagement with technology prompts heart palpitations. Yet where does this fear get us? For the last decade, I’ve studied how and why teenagers use social media. I’ve driven around the country United States talking to youth and observing their online activities, listening to them as they struggle to understand what keeps their parents up at night. Meanwhile, I’ve watched as news organizations have breathlessly promoted fearful messages about the dangers of the Internet, often ignoring data that show otherwise. It is only natural — and also crucial to our societal well-being — for parents to want to protect their children. And yet that protective instinct can go too far. Maturation is a process. Teens do not wake up on their 18th birthday and suddenly understand how the world works, even if legally they are adults. They can’t acquire empathetic sensibilities by sitting in a bubble. They must interact with others and take part in public life to develop an appreciation for society and their role in it. As parents, it is our responsibility to be there for them, to serve as role models and guides, to pick them up when they fall down, and to encourage them to take some risks while discouraging others. No matter how much we miss the snuggling days, we need to encourage our children to become independent, thoughtful, curious people. Social media and the Internet have become an important part of that process.
