Teens and Social Media the ability to manage risks

Have you been Catfishing? 

As parents, we are more concern about The Catfishing “A person who pretends to be someone else”. They are a lot catfishing on the internet that tries to impersonate people they are not so that they can trick teenagers into anything they may want them to do and can end up by kidnapping.

The fear of flunking a message to another person may cause the young person to gain more anxiety and this may also disturb their sleep. Some teens wake up during the night and consult their social networks waiting for a reaction posted on Instagram and Snapchat. The social media platforms who seem to cause this frustration on the teens are Instagram and Snapchat.

Addictions may start to come in the more a teenager uses social media because every time a teenager gets a notification they have a release in dopamine in their brain, thus making them want more of it as if it were a drug. This may all end up affecting a child’s school work, and their ability to pay attention to people they should pay attention to such as their parents, guardians, or teachers.
