Social Media is commonly perceived to be something unknown to adults, however, this is ever-changing, as we continue to live in the age of technology, it’s now very common for parents to have social media accounts.

What can you do?

Keep up to date with trends, kids are always inventing new slang, you should always keep up to date, this way you might capture early warning signs. Keep tabs on who your child is interacting with, what influential people is he/she following.

The more you know about your child’s online life, you can get a better understanding of what they do in the real world.

Social media companies can do more to stop hateful content going up on their sites, stricter rules and harsher punishments might make someone think twice before posting something that incites violence.
