Mental Health Day
Reminder: Social media can impact mental health. Normalize talking about it.
If you find yourself scrolling through your Instagram feed while hanging out with your tween, take the opportunity to narrate how posts are making you feel. You might feel inspired or amused, but some might make you feel badly about yourself.
Share your thoughts out loud. Let your tween know what you plan to do about any feeds that leave you feeling depleted, anxious, or judged. Help your tween see that this can easily happen to anybody, and feeds can always be unfollowed.
