Want your children to do more this summer than hold a device to their nose? Create some summer rules for social media. Use an app like unGlue or OurPact and shut off access until they can check each box on the list. #Parenthack #parentingforthewin #summasummasummatime 🙂
Increase in device and social media can correlate to an increase in likelihood of inappropriate behaviors online. Behaviors like cyberbullying, sexting, or responding to contact by online sexual predators. Don’t worry, we’ve got your back. Use Bark monitoring this summer and our advance algorithms will alert you to any potential risky behaviors it finds on your kids social media accounts, email accounts or text messages.
Additionally, print out this pdf file and have them check off their to-do list before they can get on any social media. You can also update your technology contract for summer usage, this is a good time to go back over general ground rules for device usage and consequences for failure to follow the rules.
