Girls and Navigating Social Media
with Lindsey Turnbull and Maria Fuller
Hello parents of daughters! This post is really for you, especially if you have concerns about social media. So many parents I meet and speak to are either: completely fearful of social media, going as far as tracking every keystroke their daughter makes, OR they’re completely hands-off because they find it so overwhelming, they don’t know where to start.
There’s a better way! Even if you’ve never opened an app in your life, you can help your daughter navigate the social media waters.
I spoke with Maria Fuller, of Raising a Powerful Girl, about some common misconceptions about social media and how you can help your daughter be her best self online and off.
Social media is ubiquitous in girls’ lives. Too often, parents are not sure what parenting technique to use, opting for a to much or too little approach, or brush social media off entirely- demonizing it or tells their daughters it doesn’t matter. These misunderstandings can cause friction between parents and daughters. Informing parents can only benefit them!
