Good behaviour on social media isn’t an instinct - it’s a skillset. Let’s help our kids acquire it by first examining our own sharing practices.
Kids can be very clever when trying to persuade mum and dad that parental controls are a bad idea. Here are the facts you need to know - and share.
Digital rules are a bit like smartphone screens. Sooner or later, they’re going to get smashed. The important thing is how you handle the repairs.
The solution to healthy social media use isn’t about giving up your favourite platforms - it’s about learning how to engage more intentionally.
There’s a big difference between technical proficiency and “digital literacy," say experts.
It’s still early days, but experts say there are signs a backlash is building.
Cyberbullying is on the rise. But we can arm our kids with practical strategies that will help them contain and combat harassment - to become “upstanders” not “bystanders” to online nastiness.
The people we follow on social media are not necessarily the ones we like, let alone admire. “Hate-following” is a thing.
If there's anything teens hate more than a lecture about screen-time, it's being bossed around and having their privacy invaded. So imagine the shock when they realise that their favourite social media platforms are doing exactly that.
