The world is changing. Fast. It seems that each week there is a new platform for people to engage and communicate with one another and it’s becoming more difficult to keep track of them all. I think most parents would agree that the impact of Facebook on their children’s lives was daunting enough but now with Instagram, SnapChat, Ask.FM and more, I bet most parents wish we could all go back to a time when it was just Facebook!
In our work with teen girls, I see firsthand the troubles that some girls go through with social media. From bullying to an unhealthy obsession over how many ‘friends,’ ‘likes’ or ‘followers’ they have.
