Sharing Social Media as a Family

The joys and perils media
Andrea Tomkins writes about her family's approach:

"I think every kid should know how to swim. It's one of those crucial life skills that must be in everyone's arsenal. [...] Our kids learned that water is fun, but also dangerous, and we told them they had to be careful around water. [...] I think our approach to social media should be the same as it is for swimming. Shouldn't we teach our kids about the joys and the perils of it, instead of just tossing them in and hoping they can keep their heads up above water – swim, not sink?"
