Social Media Safety

STRATHAM —Wiggin Memorial Library’s Teen Room and the Cooperative Middle School are pleased to announce a Social Media Safety Program for parents and teachers.

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.
