I spoke with Tim Woda looking for his advice on how to keep children safe growing up in the digital age. We also spoke about parent engagement, getting parents to understand that it's okay to monitor their children's online conversations with friends. Our parents did it. We can as well.
Not until I learn to remind myself of how little the opinions of others matter in deciding who I become in life will my social media addiction be entirely cured. It's not my use of the websites that trouble me, but my dependence on them to make me feel whole.
Perhaps it's because I'm a strong believer in the power of language, physical interaction, and out-dated methods of communication, but I worry every day that we are ruining ourselves because of social media.
