Limiting Adolescents Social Media Exposure Alexa Mealey

Adolescents overusing social media can lead to cyberbullying and clique-forming
Parents should limit their children's social media exposure by monitoring online communications to prevent cyberbullying and its detrimental effects.
Long term effects of cyberbullying can include:

depression, anxiety, severe isolation, and tragically, suicide

Unfortunatley, it can be difficult to tell when a child is being cyberbullied

It is important for parents to encourage open communication with their children so they can have a better idea of what is taking place online, ultimately, developing greater sense of trust and a safer environment.
With the proper supervision and intervention of parents, social media can be a safe place for online interaction and exploration.
