Accentuate the Positive
Reminder: Narrate the positive social media behaviors you see as your child demonstrates them.
Catch your tween succeeding! Point out anytime you notice them using the Thumbs Down skills.
For example, you might say:
- I noticed you asked to speak to me in person when things got complicated over our last text chain
- I hear you reached out to your cousin to ask about something you wanted to post – great job using your Trusted Team!
- I appreciate you sharing your thoughts with me about how to word the text to your friend about not being able to make their birthday party
Every so often
Make it a Family Affair!
Until your pet or stuffed animal is an influencer!
