Being forewarned is being forearmed. Parents please take the time to become informed about social media and how it affects children. Children are more vulnerable because they ‘re born into this technology whereas older adults did not have access as children. We have an epidemic of depression in this country in our young people.
Perhaps it’s because we’ve exchanged a personal meaningful face to face relationship in ‘reality’ with people and our Savior for a 3 sec byte on a screen of a faceless, nameless entity – pavlo’s dog looking for that reward – a like or share….instant gratification or disappointment in a virtual existence instead of meaningful communication and yes, with all the debates that can come with real interactions. Parents please limit your child’s acces and if they rebel against this it proves without a doubt the time needs to be limited and direct face to face human interaction increased.
