Social Media and Our Kids

Stay informed about social media issues such as cyber bullying, tips for parents to talk about social media, and how to protect your family from the negative impact of social media. Camera and video capability are powerful tools and require common sense. Let’s talk to our teens about when and where these tools are appropriate and empower them to use good judgment.

Please follow these links for more information from the experts:
