Wake Up, Parents!

According to a new survey from the Pew Research Center, parents aren't paying attention when it comes to their teens' social media activities.

Only 61% of the parents surveyed say they check the websites their teens visit, or look at their social media profiles.  Only a little more than half of parents have "friended" their teens on Facebook, Twitter or other social media.  Less than half look at their teens' text messages or know the password to their email accounts or cell phones.

Naomi Schaefer Riley, a senior fellow at the Independent Women's Forum, writes about this in an article for The New York Post. 

Can you imagine parents 50 years ago saying that they never visit the places their kids go?  Or that they've never met their friends' parents?  Would any self-respecting mom have admitted to never going into her 13-year-old's room, or not knowing whether her kids had put up nude pictures of themselves in a public place, or letting strange adults send secret letters to her children?  Of course not.

Keeping track of what teenagers are doing and viewing online is part of being a responsible modern parent, especially given the dangers of "sexting" and the harms of pornography. •
