What do kids do on YouTube and Snapchat? What are the benefits and drawbacks of these apps for minors? What can parents do to promote responsible use?
YouTube and Snapchat, two of the most popular apps among middle and high school students, pose understandable concerns for parents. From graphic content to stranger danger, from the Momo hoax to the Tide Pod challenge, and countless stories linking social media use to depression, both apps can seem like minefields of potential danger.
This free presentation will answer those questions, and help parents better communicate with their teens about social media.
Wednesday, Oct. 9 from 7 to 8 p.m. at Parkway Central Middle School.
