5 Healthy Habits to Teach Your Kids About Social Media Platforms

Social media will always be a part of lives now. It’s no longer a fad that’s gonna be faded out soon. Existing social media platforms may end in the future, but new social platforms will emerge and replace the existing platforms.

With this in mind, parents should teach their children about social media. Your kids will never escape this, so why not teach them early on? You don’t have to give them smartphones, but just letting kids know that social media platforms exist is already a great start.

Now, along with the fundamental aspects of social networking (how to use it, what are the platforms, privacy issues), it’s essential to teach kids about the healthy habits of using social media platforms. And if you need a guide about that, we have a quick list of those social media habits.

Are Social Media Platforms Bad For You?

There are tons of changes in the way we live, ever since the internet emerged. Some are good, some are bad, and most of the time, people blame social media platforms for it.

“Everyone’s becoming anti-social!”
“Where are true meaningful relationships?”
“People are getting lazier than ever”
“Oh my god, the beauty standards are getting higher because of social media platforms!”
“Everyone’s living in a mask now…Thanks a lot, social media.”

People are quick to blame social media for everything negative that is happening with society. But come to think of it, are social media platforms really the problem here?
