How Social Media Can Negatively Affect Your Child



If your child is currently on social media or if they’ve been asking to join, it’s important to talk to them about what social media is, what rules you have for it and how it doesn’t always show an accurate picture of someone’s life.

Most social media apps require users to be at least 13 years old. But according to the U.S. Surgeon General, nearly 40% of children 8 to 12 years old and 95% of children 13 to 17 years old use social media apps.

When social media is used irresponsibly it can bring negative effects such as: 

-Body image concerns
-Cyberbullying
-Online predators
-Dangerous viral trends
-Tics
-Changes in their daily behavior
