Just attended an outstanding, informative session by Assistant Principal Scammell for parents on social media use by their children.

John’s presentation covered:

  • What devices do your kids use
  • What forms of social media are popular with junior high students
  • Good family practices to help your child make good decisions in using social media
  • Live demo

I learned that virtually all junior high students have access to devices that can connect to the internet, and that instagram and snapchat are key media for junior high students.  Parents can model appropriate use and help their children make good decisions to protect themselves and deal with inappropriate content before they encounter it. Parents can help adolescents think about consequences before sending information.

Thanks to Council Chair Gaylene and Principal Yule for the opportunity to attend.
