Brett will be answering parents’ questions about different social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc) and the problems and concerns that can arise with their use among teens and tweens. Brett will discuss why 13 is the age limit set for social media sites, how parents can monitor and protect their kids online, and why what they post now can affect them years later, plus many other topics.
