The good news is that if you missed Monday night’s CNN special report on kids and social media, #Being13: Inside the Secret World of Teens, you are able to catch it online. The show was well-done and informative. I’m recommending that youth workers, parents, grandparents, and anyone else who cares about kids give it a look. We truly live on a changing landscape. So many of the youth culture issues that we address here at CPYU and through our online Digital Kids Initiative were addressed. If you’re a youth worker, be sure to give parents a “heads-up” and point them to #Being 13.
As a matter of follow-up, there are three resources that I want to highlight that we’ve developed or found that are worth checking out. . . .
- Our Digital Kids Initiative. This site is updated regularly is loaded with all kinds of audio, video, news, research, and free downloadable resources.
- Our “Parents’ Primer on Social Networking.” This is a free download that youth workers can hand on to parents.
- The infographic posted below, “Unbelievable Statistics About Kid and Teens on the Internet,” which was put together by the folks at Search RPM. . .
