Social networks are here to stay. It's becoming the norm for how teens, adults and even grandparents communicate. Welcome to Generation S, the generation who chooses to be social. It is not limited by demographic such as age, education or location. It's simply a choice.
The truth is our kids and teens are growing up with Generation S in their DNA. We might as well accept it. Trying to stop them from participating in Generation S is probably wasted effort.
We can however, help them be safe and smart while also having fun. We can teach them how to connect with their friends, communicate as they want and still be safe.
It's not just about teen internet safety or social media teen education. It's about an entire family choosing to be a smart member of Generation S. It's about parents partnering with their teens, not just controlling them. It's about finding both safety and blessings in using social media.
A social savvy family is not only safe and smart about social technologies but they also have fun, connect with others and keep their identity grounded in who they are.
