Social Media and Youth

By Middle School, the internet is no longer a solitary experience for students, it’s social.  75% of Middle School students have a presence online and 30% are using some form of social media to text, chat, blog for more than three hours a day.  26% felt their parents would be nervous if they knew what they did online.  Technology is going to play an important part in your child’s life.  It is equally important for parents to educate themselves  about social media so they can protect their children from dangers lurking online.
