Social Networking sites play an important role in the lives of so many young people. Over 60% of 13-17 year olds have at least one profile on a social networking site, spending more than 2 hours per day on these sites. Social networking sites can present opportunities to youth who participate in them, but like any activity, there are also associated risks. It is important for parents to understand ways to help their children use these sites wisely.
Back by popular demand Jodi Rupnow will help us explore the pros and cons of a few of the currently popular social networking sites, as well as provide us with tips on how to help our children use them safely and appropriately.
