Social Media: Parenting issues for children and young adults
13:00 - 14:00
Anne McCormack speaks about helping young people to manage their own use of social media so that they are safe and happy can be a tricky path for parents to navigate. That is due to the fact that young people dont want to be chaparoned online, especially as they get older and feel the need for increased independence. And while parents don't want to be policing their activity, they want to help keep them safe.
This lunchtime talk will look at finding a balance between leting young people fend for themselves online, and helping them by providing boundaries. Following the publication of her book 'Keeping your children safe on social media: five easy steps, Anne discusses an easy guide to supporting your child on social media to stay safe and mentally happy.
