Protecting Today’s Teens: A Guide to a Safer Online Interaction
Learning how to stay safe online has never been more important. That is why we wanted to share an informative piece on this topic by My Tutor: The Parents’ Guide to Teaching Your Teen Online Safety.
More teens than ever are using social media daily, engaging in activities ranging from learning to socialising, gaming to shopping.
In this research-backed guide, they cover:
- The most popular social media platforms for teens
- How to stay safe when socialising online
- The connection between Influencers, body image, and mental health
The guide also discusses the pros and cons of Instagram, which (2023) has 2.35 billion active monthly users. Although it is great for discovering inspiring ideas, the use of filters means it is easy to get exposed to unrealistic concepts of what is real or the norm.
