Subtweeting

During my trainings, I discuss cyberbullying and try to have the audience think outside of text messages or Facebook posts. I discuss meme bullying,  fake chat logs and apps used to send anonymous texts to others. I found this article related to a different kind of cyberbulling that can occur primarily on Twitter. It’s referred to as subtweeting. I like this article because it gives you an understandable definition of subtweeting and suggestions for how what to do if this occurs to your child and and tips to help educate youth not to engage in subtweeting.

Parental Support on Social Media

During my trainings, I encourage parents to sign up for Facebook and Instagram at minimum to learn how they work. I discuss the parental benefits of understanding the platforms, so they can articulate to their children how to make safe and wise decisions when using them. Social media can also be a useful tool for parents who needs support being parents. Check out this article by the folks at Connect Safely.
