Keeping the 'Child' in Children.Teaching Social Media Safety
Educational Speaker & Consultant
A guiding voice in navigating the evolving social media landscape.
Do your children or students understand what a healthy amount of online time really means? That a ‘privacy setting’ doesn’t necessarily mean private? The possibility of health risks of radiation from devices, the dangers of gaming with strangers, the risk of posting too much information online?
Do you know the reason for not creating online accounts until at least the age of 13?

Have you seen a change in your students’ behaviors in the years following their exposure to social media?
Are you concerned about the impact of social media on students’ mental health?
Do your students suffer anxiety and depression as a direct correlation from online activity?
Have you questioned the ‘right’ age to get your child a cell phone or social media account?
Do you look at your child’s online conversations, or do you feel it’s invading their privacy?
Have you noticed a difference in your child’s personality since having a mobile device? Are they moodier, less social with family and friends, or addicted to their devices? Have you had ongoing arguments with your child over their devices or online activity?
Have their grades suffered? Does your child do homework with their phone next to them?
