Social Media Parent & Student Night - April 8, 2014

Posted in News & Announcements

Instagram Is Eating My Daughter, and
My Son Won’t Stop Playing Grand Theft Auto:

What You Need to Know About the Emerging Worlds of Social Media 

leo

Dr. Sax will present research regarding: How much time spent playing video games is too much time? Which video games are healthy for children? How do we know? At what age is it OK for a child to have a cell phone? How about a smartphone? What’s the evidence? At what age is it OK for a child to have a social media page, such as Instagram or ask.fm? How much should I know, as the parent, about what my child is doing online?

This presentation begins with a review of recent research showing that the more time a girl spends on social media, the more likely she is to become depressed. It continues with an exploration as to why social media seems to pose greater risks to girls than to boys, and what parents need to know and to do in order to help girls and boys develop the right skills for emerging social media. It also includes research on the effects of video games, beginning with the question of why boys appear to be at least eight times more likely than girls to become ‘addicted’ to video games such as “Call of Duty” and “Grand Theft Auto.”
