Social Media and Teens - What Every Parent Needs to Know

Jun 05, 2022

This is one of the questions I am asked the most by parents. At what age should my child have a social media account. And how do I monitor where they are on the internet and what they are doing. So, I invited Rick Capriola to help us with all of these questions today. 

A 2019 study of more than 6,500 12- to 15- year-olds in the U.S. found that those who spent more than three hours a day using social media might be at heightened risk for mental health problems.

You will learn:

  • At what age kids should have a social media account
  • Which apps to stay away from that are not safe for kids and teens
  • 5 Ways to protect your teen when it comes to social media

Richard Capriola is a mental health and addictions counselor and has been for over two decades. In 2020 he published, “The Addicted Child, A Parent’s Guide to Adolescent Substance Abuse” and a workbook for parents.
