This #digitaldialogue focuses on Screen/Life Balance.  Start the conversation about ways to manage the anxiety that can come with access to online interactions.

Chat with your tween about how online interactions make them feel and what they can do about it.  How would they feel if they were left out of a social event? What about if their post doesn’t get a lot of likes? What can they do if the news becomes so grim that they start to feel scared? Encourage them to pay attention to how they’re feeling before and after they use an app. Remind them that they get to decide what they engage with online.
