Interviewed on Canadian TV

Last Friday I was interviewed by our polite neighbors up north on Canadian TV show 100 Huntley Street.

The conversation was about teens and mobile devices–who our kids are talking with, what they are posting, and the content they’re absorbing. I love host Maggie Johns who opens the door immediately declaring, “Social media! You can’t hide it from your kids forever!” She thanks me for my new book, The Teen’s Guide to Social Media and Mobile Devices and informs me, “This is the book I’m going to give to my son Ethan on his 13th birthday!”

Maggie asks, “What is the number one piece of advice you give parents like myself who have kids who are embarking in this whole world of social media at their fingertips?”

    This is a great interview. I thought I was doing my son a “favor” by letting him get an instagtram account when he was 13. It was going to be ok because he would be under our supervision. It backfired on me, and my good husband never said, “I told you so”. So we have new rules, and honestly no social media right now. This interview was great, we communicate a lot, but maybe we need deeper communication.
