TIPS FOR PARENTS DEALING WITH KIDS AND SOCIAL MEDIA

The Denton County Sheriff’s Office is focused on keeping children safe from internet predators.  We work closely with other agencies to conduct Joint Online Solicitation Operations.  Here are a few tips that parents can use when dealing with kids and social media.

  • Get up to speed on social media so that you can communicate with your kid and monitor their social media.
  • Set limits on how much time is spent on social media.
  • Teach your kids how to recognize and report abuse.
  • Embrace the benefits of social media and teach your kids how it is a powerful tool if used effectively.
  • Teach your kids what is and what is not appropriate to post on social media.
  • Take advantage of safety controls and monitoring apps to protect them from harm.
