Parents, Pandemic and Safe Social Media

Especially during a time like this, it’s so important for kids and teens to connect with their friends and family. Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit’s Senior Director of Planning Todd Krieger discusses safe ways for kids to engage online with Julie Fisher, M.Ed. For young kids, Julie recommends arranging secure ways for kids to connect through Zoom and FaceTime. For tweens and teens, it’s important that parents set expectations and invite open communication for their children’s social media use. Parents must work with their kids to find a healthy balance between restricting screen time and social media overuse.
