Social Networking, Tweens and Teens
This is the image for the news article titled Social Networking, Tweens and TeensLife for today's teenagers is vastly different than it was 10 years ago. Teens and tweens have unlimited access to information, apps and websites that can be wonderfully helpful but also lead to concerning behaviors if parents and educators do not have the knowledge to recognize or identify changes in moods or attitudes.

Join us for a presentation in the Crafton Elementary School auditorium on Wednesday, October 18 at 6 pm.  Led by school district liaison and UPMC Behavioral Health Special Ryan Klingensmith, this parent night will define categories of social networking and will illustrate how it can impact the education of your child as well as their self-image, social and mental health.

The presentation will review image boards, untraceable texting/sexting, internet predators, gossip/rumor-spreading sites, video chatting, blogs, eat disorders, self-harm and suicide. Parents will learn effective ways to communicate with their son or daughter about social media and being responsible cyber citizens.

Child care will be provided by high school teacher Suzanne Verbanick and students enrolled in child development classes.
