This in an interesting article about social media use in middle school. It has some very good "tips" about teaching this age group specifically how to use social media responsibly.
At Sleeping Giant, we ask students to have phones "off and away" during school hours unless approved by a teacher for educational use. This article reinforces some of the reasoning behind our policy.
Some reflective questions to consider:
Do you have rules for social media use? If so, what are they?
How do you monitor your child's social media use?
What do you do as a family to stay connected to one another?
