Deep Dive: @SharonSaysSo on Preparing Kids for Social Media and the Internet Good Inside with Dr. Becky

    • Parenting

There’s no one right way to approach technology with teens. But there is a framework: Instead of *protecting* your kid from the internet, focus on *preparing* them for it. In this week’s episode, Dr. Becky talks with Sharon McMahon, the woman known as “America’s government teacher” behind the popular podcast and IG @SharonSaysSo, about teaching her teens to mindfully engage with social media. The two walk through scripts for talking to our kids about technology and strategies for building media literacy skills. Remember: While we can’t control everything our kids see online, we can establish ourselves as a safe person to talk to about what they might find.
